Gaien Ginkgo Avenue4.5
Meiji Jingu Gaien Park, home to the 1964 Tokyo Olympics stadium, golf exercise cages and an ice-skating rink, is also a good spot to enjoy seasonal changes of nature. The most stunning here is the Icho Namiki, an avenue lined with ginkgo trees, whose greenish leaves turn into blazing yellow color in autumn. The golden tunnel created by hundreds of trees is ethereal beauty, and the yellow carpet of fallen leaves comfortably rustles as you walk along.
Autumn may be the best season but sprouts in spring, lush green in summer and bare branches in winter are also fantastic. Apart from sports facilities, Meiji Jingu Gaien Park is also dotted with establishments where you can experience tea ceremony, pottery making and other cultural activities.

There are trees of ginkgos on both sides. When around November, the leaves are dyed yellow and they are very beautiful. In parallel there are benches and restaurants on both sides of the road, so it is perfect for a walk. The nearest station is Gaien mae.

Beautiful, yet flooded with both locals and tourists. Go there in early morning to avoid the crowd.

Take the subway to the 青山一丁目 station and wander to the Meijijingu Gaien, you can see the gingko road from the 青山二丁目 to the Meiji Memorial Picture Gallery. The picture taken from this view is better than the view of other side. You can have a picture include the blue sky, golden gingko and the Meiji Memorial Picture Gallery, which give you the most tranquil and peace view in the world.
