TOUR REPORT ON MAY 18, 2019 (THE EAST GARDEN OF THE IMPERIAL PALACE)

Thank you for joining our tour to the East Garden of the Imperial Palace on May 18.  We welcomed 28 guests from Australia, Canada, Germany, Poland, Russia, Turkey, UK, and USA. The weather was fine with a quick shower that wasn’t a big deal. We enjoyed our walking tour and great conversation very much.

Our tour starts from Tokyo station and Marunouchi area followed by Edo Castle premises. Very modern buildings to historical sites.

Entering the East Garden of the Imperial Palace. That’s the former site of Edo Castle’s innermost circle of defense. Edo Castle was the residence of the Tokugawa shogun who ruled Japan from 1603 to 1867. Emperor Meiji also resided there from 1868 to 1888 before moving to the newly constructed Imperial Palace.
