Tour Report on 9 September 2017

East Gardens of the Imperial Palace

Thank you for joining our tour on September 9th.



On the day of tour, it was quite hot, but not so humid compare to Aug and Jul. I guess beautiful Japanese autumn season is around the corner!

We welcomed 27 guests from Australia, Canada, Chile, Germany, Spain, UK, US and so on. We divided into 5 groups.

Some of the guests on that day were really interested in Ninja. We usually take you to the “Hyakunin Bansho” where it said the Ninja used to work during the Edo period. When we take the guests there, we explain not only for basic Ninja information but also add some details about it.

 Group A,

At the end of the tour, a few guests asked me about fruit in Japan. It seemed they wanted to obtain Japanese apples.

Apple is one of our popular fruit in Japan, so that students often bring them as their lunch or lunch dessert to the school. I think it is the same situation in the other many countries, but in some foreign countries, students bring it without cutting and bite it directly at school. On the other hand, in Japan, apples are cut in less than one quarter, and then, putting in a lunch box, and students bring them to the school. They eat them using toothpick or grab it directly with their hands. I think It’s because Japanese apples are bigger than that of other companies.

In addition, the skins of the apples are often peeled off completely, but sometimes peeling like a rabbit


Autumn season in Japan has a lot of fresh and sweet fruit, such as pears, peaches, chestnuts and grapes and so on. Please try them when you visit Japan.


We have a regular tour every Saturday and irregularly Asakusa tour. Please check our website, Facebook and TripAdvisor.
