We had two guests from Germany and Singapore joining our weekday tour at the East Garden of the Imperial Palace on Dec.18 .
It was a beautiful sunny day to enjoy the colorful leaves of ginkgo trees and maple trees that still remained in the beginning of winter .
As it was a weekday morning tour , we found few visitors walking around . Therefore , we had enough time to appreciate not only peaceful surroundings but also the exhibition of the Imperial collections at the Sannomaru Shozokan Museum .
We were so happy to share an enjoyable time with our guests , and hope they add our tour on their memories of Japan .
