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.

Meiji Jingu is the Shinto shrine which is dedicated to the defined spirits of Emperor Meiji and his wife, and was built with donation and volunteering by the Japanese people in 1926. Gaien is the outer precinct of Meiji Jingu, and it is famous for Ginkgo trees in fall. Leaves on the ground seems yellow carpet all over! You can see the Ginkgo yellow leaves from end of November to beginning of December.
