Thank you for coming the regular tour of the Imperial Palace and the East garden. We welcomed 55 guests from all around the world and divided into 4 groups on that day. Even it has already started the rainy season this year since last week, it was nice and sunny early summer day which is good for the walking tour.
June, the rainy season, is the best timing to see Japanese iris. There are many place you can enjoy irises around Tokyo (eg. Meiji Jingu Shrine, Hama Rikyu Garden, Kiyosumi Garden, etc), and my best recommendation is here, Ninomaru Garden, Imerial Palace. There are 4 fields of iris and 84 kinds of Japanese iris blooms from early to mid June. So many people come to the Ninomaru Garden with camera to enjoy these flowers. Some of them (including me!) tries to make this flower by Origami. 🙂
Hope all guests enjoy the rest of their days in Japan, and all guides always look forward to meeting them at the next tour!!
