Meiji Jingu Gaien

A Popular Fall Leaves Spot in the Metropolis

Meiji Jingu Gaien (Meiji Jingu Outer Precint), one of the most popular autumn leaves spots in Tokyo, is famous for its trail of gingko trees that stretch for as long as 300 meters.

Stare at this beautiful picturesque view spreading out before your eyes from Aoyoma Street, and you'll instantly understand why this is a popular picture taking spot.

Enjoy fall foliage at one of the top scenic spots in Tokyo

With 146 Gingko trees lining the streets, it's no wonder Meiji Jingu Gaien (Meiji Jingu Outer Precint) is well known for its fall scenery. The 300 meters long gingko tree road shines bright gold come autumn, and is nicknamed "Golden Road". This road becomes even livelier during the peak fall leaves period of November, when spectators and couples gather to enjoy the "Jingu Gaien Gingko Festival".

The gingko trees were purposely planted from tall to short, so that you could feel the distance. As a result, the view of the Meiji Memorial Picture Gallery from the entrance on Aoyama Street becomes more picturesque. Stare at this scenic view spreading out before your eyes, and you'll instantly understand why this is a popular picture taking spot.

Why don't you visit such a hot spot, that's often been used for popular Japanese television dramas? You can take a picture here, just like in the dramas you've been watching!
