Weekday Tour of the East Gardens of Imperial Palace on October 12
- East Gardens of the Imperial Palace
Thank you for choosing our weekday tour at East Garden of the Imperial Palace on 12 Oct. We welcomed 5 guests from Canada and Israel. We hope all of you enjoyed it.
It was cloudy and a bit colder than usual, but we were so happy we didn’t use umbrella during the tour.
As promised, we post group photos and snapshots here to remember the fun times we shared.
Ninomaaru garden is a beautiful Japanese style garden where we can stroll around it. We enjoyed watching carp in the pond and looking contrast between modern building and Japanese traditional landscape. Our guest told us useful information that Montreal has a Japanese garden and people live in there can enjoy Cherry Blossoms in spring. That sounds great!
By the way our tour starts at the Tokyo Station. Japanese railways was found at 14th October in 1872. Now we celebrate 150th Anniversary of Japanese railways! Opening of railways 150 years ago was a symbol of Japanese modernization after the end of Edo period. Japanese railways have been still improving especially Shinkansen. Nishi kyusyu Shinkansen has just opened from Nagasaki to Takeo Onsen in Saga. Let’s take Shinkansen and visit all over Japan!
