THE EAST GARDENS OF THE IMPERIAL PALACE TOUR ON JULY 20, 2019
- East Gardens of the Imperial Palace
Thank you for joining our tour visiting the Imperial Palace East Gardens on July 20th. We welcomed 16 guests from U.S.A., Argentina, Singapore and India. We divided the guests and guides into 3 groups and started the tours respectively.This time in Japan, rainy seasons usually pass, but this year we are still in the rainy season. It’s hot and humid. What a long rainy season! Fortunately we took only a light shower during the tour so we didn’t need an umbrella.
After the rainy season, we enjoy fireworks displays throughout the country. Some famous ones in Tokyo are Sumida(July 27), Koto(Aug. 1) and Edogawa(Aug. 3). The 8th shogun, Yoshimunu, started the Sumida river fireworks display about 280 years ago in order to comfort the deceased due to a large-scale famine.
