Icho Namiki Dori

Icho Namiki Dori, or Ginkgo Tree Avenue, comes alive this time of year. The Gingko are living fossils, with no known relatives in existence. The tree, thought to originate in China, has a very distinctive leaf pattern.

The autumn colours of the Gingko are really intense - turning a very bright yellow like no other tree I've seen before.

The weather this weekend was fantastic - just bright blue skies.

I'll miss these amazing colours in a few weeks... but until then, they don't fail to put a smile on my face every single time.
