Autumn (partially) comes to Tokyo

Japan goes crazy for Autumn colours- it’s a close second to cherry blossom – there are forecasts like you see in the rest of the world for the weather and the train stations are full of pictures of where you can go to see Japan in Autumn glory.

Japan is also famous for its ginko trees. A really nice tree that lines many Tokyo streets and turns golden yellow in Autumn.

In the UK Autumn is really in September and mostly in October so it’s strange for me to be at the end of November and Autumn is still not in its full glory.

This morning on my walk to work I took the picture in this post – it’s of ginko trees. They must be slightly different species as half are yellow and the other half still mostly green.  Its the kind of view that makes you appreciate life! Beautiful!
