TOUR REPORT: THE EAST GARDENS OF THE IMPERIAL PALACE TOUR ON AUGUST 10, 2019
- East Gardens of the Imperial Palace
Thank you for all! We welcomed 30 guests from various countries such as US, UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, Croatia, Poland, South Africa, Dubai, India, Singapore and Indonesia. We divided all the guests into 2 groups and each tour took 2 hour with 2 guides.
Although it was very hot and humid, we tried to choose cool area and stay in a shade as possible. From some photo below, can you feel how we were active and concentrated in our tour?
There is one antique street lamp in the east garden of Imperial place. The bridge shown by photo is generally called Nijubashi, which is the symbolic bridge for Imperial palace. In 1887, this bridge was arranged with 6 street lamps. They started to use these lamps only after 10 years since great inventor Thomas Edison had launched electric lamp in US. It was brand new technology with modern design at that time. And in 1964 this bridge was secondary rearranged, 6 lamps were also renewed and one of no longer used lamps was preserved here. After that it has been placed on our tour course very quietly.
Actually, we have a lot of topics in our tour. Please come and join us!
