Residents and visitors admire vibrant colours of autumn at Tokyo’s famous Ginkgo Avenue

As autumn comes, Tokyo residents love to visit a famous Meiji Jingu Gaien, or Ginkgo Avenue, a 300-metre-long boulevard with 146 trees planted about 9 metres apart, between Gaienmae and Aoyama-Itchome stations that turn bright yellow for a few days.

Footage filmed on Tuesday features visitors walking along the avenue and taking photos as the spot has become a real hit on Japanese Instagram for a few days.

It is usually during this time that the alley hosts the Ginkgo Jinggu Gaien Festival, which first took place in 1997 and during which street performers and dozens of food stalls are located amidst the yellow beauty.
