Hachioji Ginkgo Festival 2014
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
It's one of the most popular spots in the whole of Tokyo for autumn leaves: the 4km stretch of road leading from Hachioji to the foot of Mt Takao is lined with 770 ginkgo trees (known as icho in Japanese), and they look rather splendid at this time of year. The autumnal colours provide an excuse for all kinds of activities at the annual Hachioji Ginkgo Festival, which is returning for its 35rd edition this year, ranging from a dance parade (Saturday only) to music performances. The wealth 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 plenty of food stalls to keep everybody well sated.
