Jingu Gaien Ginkgo Festival 2023

10:00am – 5:30pm

The festival won’t be happening in 2022 after its cancellations in 2020 and 2021. But there’s nothing to stop you walking along here at any hour of day or night. There will even be illuminations in the evening on some days.

At the end of autumn each year, the leaves on the ginkgo trees that line the Icho Namiki avenue of Meiji Jingu Shrine‘s outer gardens turn a brilliant yellow. If you go between the hours of 10 a.m. and 8 p.m., the sidewalks will be lined with food vendors serving a variety of festival-type food to keep you toasty warm.
