TOUR REPORT ON 28-April, 2018,  THE EAST GARDEN OF THE IMPERIAL PALACE

We explored the East Garden of the Imperial Palace with 48 guests from all over the world.  It’s a comfortable sunny day.

Our tour started from the Tokyo station, red brick beautiful building.

We walked to the Imperial Palace through the Marunouchi, which is the center of Japanese business.

The Imperial Palace is the former Edo Castle of the Samurai government of the Shogunate in the 17-19 century. We visited the old castle gate and castle towers.

Now, it’s the middle of the spring in Tokyo. In the Ninomaru Japanese Style garden, flowers and greenery were so beautiful.

Finally, we had a photo session of our quick kimono. Kimono is the traditional Japanese clothing. Our guests were in kimono. They look like a samurai and a samurai princess. It’s so cool.

Thank you very much for joining our tour.
