On May 4, our new project named “Cool Tours” has started.

This “Cool Tours” project is designed especially for readers who kindly read entries about cool Japan written by our writers on this website.  For you who get inclined to come to Japan and visit places described in some entries here  or  experience the events referred to in some entries here, this new service project of ours will be surely helpful.  Those “real experiences” and “live events” in the tours we would provide you with are available in the reality!

As a certified guide-interpreter in English and also a writer of the website “Cool Japan”, I would like to present one tour plan “IMPERIAL PALACE” shown as below.

Thank you for your kind cooperation, I am looking forward to your contacts.

Tour Features Imperial Palace is the residence of Japanese Emperor. There was once the Edo Castle in the 17th-19th century, and Tokugawa Shoguns resided the castle. After the Meiji Restoration, Emperor Meiji moved to Tokyo from Kyoto. The Imperial Palace is surrounded by moats, and some of the original gates and stone walls remain in the grounds. We walk around the Kokyo Higashi Gyoen which is located in the east part of the Imperial Palace where the buildings of Edo Castle used to stand.
