Autumn Color in Japan 2009 Vol 21 / Cool Japanese Scene

COOL JAPANESE SCENE / Japanese Autumn Color (33) / Japanese Autumn Color (35)

It's should be better to note Tokyo also has some Autumn Color Spots. 
Tokyo may not be known as an autumn color destination like Kyoto, but the city does offer quite a few nice spots for fall foliage in its parks and gardens.

Former Furukawa Garden (Kyu-Furukawa Teien) is one of the Autumn Color spot, which combines a Western style building with a rose garden and a traditional Japanese landscape garden.
Some trees there were already quite colorful, but the majority of maple trees have only just started to turn colors.

Only a 15 minute walk away is Rikugien, one of the most beautiful of Tokyo's many traditional Japanese landscape gardens that have their origin as a former feudal lord's residence.
The trees at Rikugien have only just started to change colors and are unlikely to peak for at least another week. From November 27 to December 13, the garden will be illuminated from sunset until 9pm.

Tokyo's official tree is the ginkgo tree, known as icho in Japanese. Its leaf, which is also used as the symbol of Tokyo, turns a brilliant gold in autumn. The most famous of the many ginkgo lined streets in Tokyo is the Icho-namiki or "Ginkgo Avenue" in Meiji-jingu Gaien, a park with various sports facilities dating from the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. The trees along the street have started turning yellow, but still retain a greenish tint. They should peak towards the end of the month.
