Autumn 2016: Meiji-jingu Gaien’s Ginkgo Avenue

Visit Date: 11/25/2016 (Best viewing Time: mid November to early December)

The Aoyama Icho Namiki (銀杏並木) or ginkgo tree lined avenue leading towards Meiji-jingu Gaien Park, is just a short walk from Aoyama-Itchome Station. It is one of the most popular autumn viewing spot in Tokyo because this 300 meters long boulevard gets covered with yellow carpet of ginkgo leaves during the season.

Most of the trees may have shed their leaves due to the previous day’s snow fall but some of the trees in the shade were still slightly green.
