Ginko Avenue’s Golden-Yellow Leaves

70 gingko trees stretch both sides of the street for over 380 meters.

Best Time of Year: The leaves are brilliant yellow from late October to the beginning of November.

Because many tourists visit during this time, there are times when the street is closed to vehicular traffic to ensure safety. The Hokkaido University Golden-leaf Festival is held on the last weekend of October, and besides stalls, the street is illuminated from six to nine in the evening.
