Thank you for the guests kindly joined our Saturday tour on 19th of March. We totally had 27 guests from eleven countries, by four groups.
It was drizzling sometime, but we had sunshine at the end of the tour. Some of our guests enjoyed our ”instant Kimono” for taking a photo. You can wear the Kimono in 30 seconds! Not always, but we bring such Kimono occasionally.
By the way, do you know the fact Tokyo has islands? Last week I went to the one of such islands, Izu-Oshima. It takes two hours by ship from Takeshiba Port, near Hamamatsucho station. It was nice! There is a Camellia festival in Feb-Mar there and I could see Oshima-zakura as well. Oshima-zakura is one of cherry-blossom flowers and we can see it in that island only. Also we can enjoy Onsen hot-spring as well. It is sooo relaxing.
On 21-March, The Weather Forecast Agency announced that they recognized the bloom of Somei-Yoshino (most popular type of cherry blossom) at Yasukuni-shrine at Chiyoda-ku in Tokyo. Somei-Yoshino is the most popular type of cherry blossoms and used for such “first bloom” announcement. I guess our guests in next weekend will enjoy beautiful blooms during our tour at the East Garden of Imperial Palace. Dear our guests in next weekend, you will be a lucky witness!
