East Gardens of the Imperial Palace

Thank you for choosing our tour at East Garden of Imperial Palace on 12th June , 2024. We welcomed 11 guests from Australia, Spain, US, Canada and Germany. I hope all of you enjoyed and shared interesting conversations with us during the tour. As promised, group photos and snapshots are attached to remember the fun times we had.

Iris garden is in full bloom, and we enjoyed the dreamy flower garden. Iris is a garden plant that has been crossbred in various ways mainly by samurai in the late Edo period. So far, more than 5,000 varieties have been created, and there is a wide variety of colors and shapes.

The irises bloom only three days. At the East Garden of Imperial Palace, you can appreciate the ephemeral beauty of colorful clusters created with the utmost care so that different varieties are next to each other.

About once every two months, the Imperial Guard Band holds an outdoor concert at lunchtime in the Garden. Concerts are held irregularly, so if you run into one, you’re lucky. On this day, there were 5 fun performances. The announcement of the song introduction is in Japanese, English and Chinese.  We enjoyed an early summer outdoor concert.
