Tokyo's ginkgo tree avenue

The Meiji Jingu Gaien in Tokyo is home to a beautiful tree-lined avenue, where 146 ginkgo trees are planted along both sides of the 300-meter stretch. The trees are strategically pruned to gradually decrease in height from the entrance to the back of the street. Every autumn, the ginkgo trees turn a vibrant yellow, making the avenue one of the city's most popular spots for viewing autumn leaves.
