From mid-July to early August, you can see pretty lotus flowers blooming in ponds and marshes across Japan. Lotuses spread out their massive round leaves to the sky and absorb abundant summer sunshine. Flowers of lotus can be observed only in the morning time at this time of the year. Yusuke takes you on a slow-moving, quiet morning walk around the Shinobazu Pond at Ueno Park on this tour. The park area used to be the grounds of Kaneiji Temple, and Shinobazu pond is famous for its habitat of dense lotuses that cover the pond’s surface. As always, he will give you plenty of postcard photo opportunities with various angles and close-ups with the backdrop of both the traditional temple hall and modern high-rise buildings. Please join him and enjoy beautiful lotus flowers together!
Japan has an incredible list of interesting aspects to explore. Be it history, culture, art, tradition, religion, or culinary delights - with Yusuke, you’ll get to discover all that Japan has to offer. Yusuke is a National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter in Japan. Before foraying into the exciting world of travel and tourism, he worked in the IT industry for over three decades. If you're looking to understand Japanese business culture and social issues, he's your go-to guide. On his tours, you get to see one of the biggest megalopolises in the world, while learning about traditional Japanese culture and ideas. If you're lucky, you might find yourself getting a glimpse of old charming alleys or karaoke bars. He'll make sure you're welcomed, comfortable, and enjoy learning something new.

Yusuke's tours are always an absolute joy. We explored the park together, saw the lotus blooms, and temples and shrines. Yusuke has an easy to explaining his location and is brilliant at getting that perfect nature shot. I always look forward to his tours.
