Flowers in the east garden of the imperial palace

by Yuki

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.

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

“ Wonderful Day in Tokyo ! ”

Excellent
1 day ago Traveler: Sharis -   Tour Guide: Yuki

I came to Japan as a solo female traveler and figured it would be a good investment to tour the Tokyo area with a local, and I do not regret doing it with Yuki one bit. I spent about half a day with him and we went to the Tsukiji Fish Market, Akihabara, Meji Shrine, Asakusa and the Senso-Ji Temple. He was extremely accommodating (met me at my hotel and traveled with me back) and knowledgeable on t...

This was our first time using a private tour guide and we're very happy to say all well great on our visit to Kamakura. Yuki was prompt at arriving at our hotel, taking us to the subway and around the various areas in Kamakura. The pace was great and to our liking. We even discovered that Yuki had previously lived in Chicago (where we're from) in the past. I would recommend Yuki to all.

Yuki did a great job with our family -- two parents and 4 kids ages 16 through 6. Yuki picked us up at our hotel in Tokyo, helped us navigate the Shinkansen and bus to Hakone, and guided us around the sites of Hakone, and then got us to our ryokan where we were staying that night. He called the ryokan when we first arrived and arranged to have them pick up our bags, and again at the end of the ...

Me and my friend booked Yuki for a day where I asked him to choose the places to go, it was pouring down rain which he took into consideration and was super flexible and helpful with anything we needed. He speaks excellent english and gave us small presentations on an ipad when visiting sites. For a true authentic experience make sure to book our friend Yuki :)

On both our days with Yuki in Tokyo and Hakone he answered all our questions and requests, spent so much time how we needed. Without his help we definitely couldn't see all the fantastic places in your beautiful country. Thank you and Yuki very much.

We spent 2 days with Yuki in Tokyo. Prior to our time together, he had great suggestions for sights to see and was very quick to reply. In Tokyo, he was very organized, informative and flexible with the needs of the 3 of us who are 15, 42 and 77. It is difficult to meet the needs of a wide range of ages, but he was abile to do so easily. We highly recommend Yuki. You will be thankful you bo...

Yuki was an amazing guide. We saw so much in one day.

He took us to the most amazing viewpoints to see Mt. Fuji. kept us on schedule and made sure we saw all of the sights in one day. We loved it all, and he made it a fantastic stress-free adv...

“ I did the hakone, kamakura, and Tokyo tours ”

1 month ago Traveler: Wayne -   Tour Guide: Yuki

He allowed me to travel at my leisure while he navigated me through the public transportation. I saw more than what I anticipated and have many new memories. The knowledge he shared with me allowed me to navigate through the metro line, instead of using taxis, on my last day in japan by myself, which saved me money. Nothing but positive remarks.
