Tour Report on May 28

East Gardens of the Imperial Palace

Thank you for joining our tour, we welcomed 20guests from Italy、 Germany、 USA、 Spain、 and Philippine.
We divided all guests into 3groups and started our tour at 13:00 from Tokyo station.
Each group has 2 guides.
Unseasonal heat continued for several days, but today the temperature was less than 29 degrees, it was cloudy and humidity and windy, a little rain came in the second half of the tour.
Even so we enjoyed our walking tour in the afternoon, usually a weekday tour is held in the morning, but today was a special schedule at the East Garden.
Probabry, that is because the US president left Japan this morning, he stayed the Palace hotel nearby Imperial Palace.


That aside it seems that the rainy season has begun in Japan.
Then, we can enjoy different flowers along with the changing seasons in the East Garden.
Azeria is almost over, then rainy season is best for Japanese iris and hydrangea.
In the NINOMARU garden, 84kinds of Japanese iris blooms from early June.

It is still early in full bloom now.


I heard that the garden staff takes care of the flowers every day to keep its bloom beautifully.
They do their best through a year as they want guests to be happy.

Although it’s bothersome to go out on rainy days, however I’m cheered by looking at beautiful flowers blooming.
Hydrangea blooms the north area of Honmaru and near the FUJIMI TAMON.

Speaking of famous places for hydrangea are Kamakura and Hakone, but there are anymore places where you can enjoy it in TOKYO. For instance [SINOBAZU pond] in UENO park, and [SUMIDA park] along the Sumida river.

It will be one of pleasure of your journey.
I would like many guests to enjoy the beautiful flowers in Japan.
