Jingu Gaien Ginkgo Avenue
The Ginkgo Avenue is about 300 meters long. In that span, 146 ginkgo trees are planted about 9 meters apart, creating unique scenery when walking through this tunnel steeped in yellow. The expert in early modern landscape architecture who managed this, Yoshinobu Orishimo, was called a master in the field. The ginkgo trees were placed based on perspective, calculating the gradient of the gently sloping ground and the height of the trees as seen when facing the gallery. This view is like a masterpiece; the beautiful sight of the interwoven trees is exceptional.
