Flowers in the east garden of the imperial palace

The cherry blossom season has almost finished but there are many beautiful flowers comming to bloom one after another or all together. I have been guiding the garden for more than two years and I know that May and June are the best season to enjoy the flowers in harmony with well maintained garden of the imperial palace.

Flowers in the east garden of the imperial palace

The highlight may be the iris flowers planted in the Japanese garden.

The garden is named "Ninomaru-teien" which was renovated based on the original garden designed by "Enshu Kobori" who was a samurai as well as a master of tea celemony and famous designer of Japanese gardens.

Only the stone base of the main tower of Edo castle was restored.

Flowers in the east garden of the imperial palace

There are many trees and flowers planted instead of the original buildings of the castle.

They are well maintained by volanteer gardiners working for our emperor.Our emperor may occasionally enjoys working in this garden when it is not open to public on every Monday and Friday. Viewing flower is only a part of its atraction, there are many historical sites and buildings to deepen your interests in Japan. I can help you to make a best memory to visiting this garden with lots of knowledge and experience accumulated  during these years.I recommed you to visit Meiji shrine in the morning and comming to this garden in the afternoon. Please take a look at one of my tours.https://triplelights.com/japan/tour/tokyo-meiji-shrineeast-gardenimperial-palace-312

If you need a private guide tour, then Yuki is the best choice for it. He knows lots of from Japan's history and he gave a perfect Imperial Palace for us and he escorted us to the Tokyo Station at the end of the tour. I can 100% recommend his guide for everybody.

“ Yuki was the best! ”

1 week ago Traveler: Michele -   Tour Guide: Yuki

We went to Mount Fuji with Yuki last week, and we are so glad we chose him as our guide! Before the trip, we messaged back and forth about the cost of bus vs. train, and Yuki did all of the research to let us know which would be more cost effective. Our hotel was in the Okubo area (not where most easy-to-get-to Shinjuku hotels are), and he willingly met us in the hotel lobby on the morning of...

“ Wonderful guide! ”

Excellent
1 week ago Traveler: Carol -   Tour Guide: Yuki

My father and I were in Yokohama for a cruise. Since neither of us had been to Japan and neither speak or read Japanese, we decided to hire a guide in order to maximize our time. Yuki turned out to be the perfect choice. My father cannot walk long distances or climb stairs so Yuki took that into consideration when planning our day. He is pleasant to be with and was a pleasure to talk to. His know...

“ ok guide for tokyo ”

Good
2 weeks ago Traveler: Puneet -   Tour Guide: Yuki

we did a day tour of tokyo with him from our cruise port yokohama, he was ok as he showed us many places on subway, but he never explained much to us about japan or places we saw, moreover he asked us to pay 1 hour extra fees which paid despite of finishing our tour 2 hours early as our free shuttle bus from yokohama railway station to cruise port was at 21:30 (not his fault). in short he was ok.

“ Awesome Hakone Day trip ”

Excellent
2 weeks ago Traveler: Nicole -   Tour Guide: Yuki

Touring with Yuki made our trip to Hakone perfect! He made the entire trip seamless. He was really good at figuring out which of Hakone’s highlights would appeal to my husband and I. He also gave us a great overview of different types of Japanese food we may have otherwise missed. If we find ourselves in Japan again we would definitely book another tour with Yuki!

We were a group of 4 girls traveling from the US and none of us had visited Japan before. Yuki spoke great English, helped us get our subway passes and JR pass and was a great tour guide for the day. He was also very flexible and took us to see a garden we had not originally planned. We enjoyed our day with Yuki and highly recommend him!

Yuki is everything that I had hoped for in a guide. Punctual, polite, excellent English and more than happy to modify the tour to our needs. Our day with him was filled with great memories, excellent information, and very effective use of transport options. Yuki seems to be able to move as fast or as slow as you wish and is very attentive to the group. We enjoyed both the "Must See" Tokyo, and La...
