The Gigantic Ginkgo Tree at Iwaya Park

Inside Iwaya Park, there is the Gigantic Ginkgo Tree, which has been designated as a natural monument by Fukuoka Prefecture. It is one of the sacred trees of Iwaya Shrine, which is said to be 700 years old. In a document written in Edo period it is described as a "seven-colored tree'', which means that seven different types of plants grow from this single Ginkgo Tree.
In autumn, the golden carpet created by fallen leaves is spectacular.
The best time to see the yellow leaves is from early November to late November.
