(The East Garden of the Imperial Palace)
Thank you for choosing our regular tour of The East Garden of the Imperial Palace. We welcomed
5 guests from Australia. It was a light rain but we enjoyed two and half hour walking with our gusts.
We watched some plum-blossom. Japanese love plum-blossom viewing in February and pickled plum that is called “Umeboshi” in Japanese. It’s very sour. Have you tried?
We had a family of five members. One of them was the youngest daughter who was so cute named “Emma”.
Japanese “Ema” means 絵馬.（絵is picture. 馬is horse) “Ema” is a votive picture tablet which we offer to a shrine or temple when we pray for something of after our prayers are answered. The table sometimes gears a picture of a horse from the fact that people once dedicated a living horse.
In may case, I drew a“Ema” and dedicated when my daughter got pregnant. She got a cheerful baby.
Please go to shrine or temple and draw a “Ema” and pray when you want to make a wish.
