Tour Report in October 18th, in Asakusa
Today we welcomed 13 guests from many countries.
In Tokyo these days it had continued to rain, but today it was fine, very lucky for us. So,we could pleasantly advance the tour.
We told them the history of the Sensoji temple with seeing some buildings ,sign boards and rules, manners of Shintoism and Buddhism with experiencing those.
They were surprised to know the difference between Shintoism and Buddhism. Perhaps they could know a little bit of Japanese religion.
Today in the Sensoji temple there was the special event ,that is “Kinryu- no- Mai” ,the golden dragon dance. This event has been held since 1958 as a commemoration of the reconstruction of the main hall. This dance performance comes from the myth where long years ago a gold dragon descended from the sky to protect the principal image.
Anyway now we have 3 courses to guide you, the East Imperial Palace Garden, Asakusa, the Meiji -Shrine and Harajyuku. We are waiting for you. Please confirm details from our home page. (http://www.tfwt.jp) Than you very much.
