FLOTUS print travel pool #3

FLOTUS and Akie Abe arrived for the third stop of the tour, Yamato Island and the bonsai garden, at 9:50 a.m.

There, they approached Lake Morikami, which is stocked with Koi, with fish food in hand to feed the fish.

"Oooh! Oooh!" FLOTUS exclaimed in delight, as the Koi swarmed to wear she had dropped the fish food in the water. "Oh my, look at those! Ooh!" she said. FLOTUS and Abe stood there, delightedly throwing fish food in the water, for a few minutes.

At 9:58 a.m., FLOTUS and Akie Abe moved on to tour the final stop of the gardens, the children's museum, where a tour guide took them through every room. We could hear laughter from inside one of the classrooms, but could not hear the tour. This tour is still in process.

Pictures to follow.
