Hachioji Ginkgo Festival

The 4km stretch of road that leads from western Hachioji to the foot of Mt. Takao is lined with some 770 ginkgo trees (known as ichou in Japanese), and they look rather splendid at this time of year. The autumn colours provide an excuse for all kinds of activities at this annual festival, ranging from a classic car parade (Sunday only) to yosakoi, flamenco and hula dance performances. The abundance of kid-friendly attractions make it a good option if you're looking for something to do with the family, and naturally there'll be scads of food stalls to keep everybody well sated.
