East Gardens of the Imperial Palace

We thank all guests joining our East garden of the Imperial Palace tour on Nov.18.
We welcomed 34 guests from 15 countries all over the world.

Unfortunately it was rain, a little bit cold and windy. In this condition, we always worried about the way of tour because our tour is all outside. Now Gingko trees along the Gyoko Street colored yellow. We enjoyed it.

Speaking of Gingko trees, do you know Meiji Jingu Gaien?
Meiji Jingu Gaien is one of the park in Tokyo and was made in 1923.
It is known as the street lined with Gingko trees. Gingko trees of Meiji Jingu Gaien are planted in perspective. So we can see the beautiful landscape like paintings.
Especially in autumn, Gingko leaves change color from green to yellow. After that yellow Gingko leaves fall down and cover the ground. It looks like the golden carpet.
Around Meiji Jingu Gaien, there are a lot of nice café restaurants. I think it is the best place to stroll and eat out in autumn. I went there last week and enjoyed beautiful landscape. It was so nice!
