At the end of autumn each year, the leaves on the ginkgo trees that line the Icho Namiki avenue of Jingu Shrine outer gardens turn a brilliant yellow.
Of course, there’s nothing to stop you walking along here at any hour of day or night, but if you go between the hours of 10am and 4:30pm, the sidewalks will be lined with food vendors serving a variety of festival-type food to keep you toasty warm.
If you’re wondering where Icho Namiki is, it’s the street that leads to the area around Jingu Stadium that branches off route 246 between Aoyama Itchome and Gaienmae. It’s a little closer to Gaienmae.
