Ginkgo leaves turned to bright yellow / Kishibojin-Zoshigaya-Myougadani
When I(Shige) was a child, I often smelled the fall leaf burning, and it told me that winter was coming soon. It was smoky but a little bit sweet scent. I loved that inscence.
Nowadays, I seldom get a sniff of the burning of fallen leaves.
How is your neighborhood?
I went for a walk with Lee to enjoy the yellow colored ginkgo leaves.
Kishibojin has an old ginkgo tree that is said to be 600 years old.
Kishibojin has perfectly changed the atmosphere from the summer(see the previous post).
I love both, the summer and the fall.
Zoshigaya cemetery's ginkgo leaves.
At the "Kyoiku-no-Mori" park.
This is the place I routinely visit during the morning walk with Lee.
This place was originally the campus of a university. At 1st, "Tokyo Koto Shihan Gakko(Tokyo higher normal school)" was established here in Meiji era, then it was restructured as "Tokyo Kyoiku Daigaku(Tokyo University of Education)" after the WW2. When it turned to the University of Tsukuba in 1975, most of the facilities were moved to Tsukuba city of Ibaraki prefecture, and the vacant site of the University turned into the park. This park includes the gym, indoor swimming pool, the playground, etc. The closest station is Myogadani of the Marunouchi-line (Tokyo Metro).
