Meiji Jingu Gaien Autumn Leaves Illumination

★ Staff recommendation
4:30pm – 7:30pm

At the end of fall each year, the leaves on the ginkgo trees that line the Ichō Namiki avenue of Meiji Jingū Shrine‘s outer gardens turn a brilliant yellow, and there will be illuminations in the evening.

Why not also grab tickets to the Tokyo Christmas Market nearby?

Schedule 2023

The leaves will be lit up from November 25 to December 3 from around 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. every day.

Note that the official festival has not taken place since 2019, so it is unlikely to be back for 2023.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
