Gingko, an indispensable tree of Japan in this autumn/winter season

Japan is a country with four distinct seasons. Autumn is the season, when the color of the leaves changes.

Among many trees is Gingko, which changes the color of its leaves into yellow from late autumn till early winter. Tokyo has several passages that are surrounded by many Gingko trees, which cover the passage with their yellow leaves in these days.

Ginko is not only beautiful, but also tasty and useful. You can eat Ginko nuts. It is loved by Japanese people as a seasonal cuisine. You can also find Ginko as an ingredient of various cosmetics products.

If you are interested in how the Ginko trees are in Tokyo in these days, feel free to visit our facebook page. We’ve uploaded various photos there as well.
