The Majestic Ginkgo Tree of Nagata

The large ginkgo tree in the precincts of Oimatsu Shrine is said to have been planted as a sacred tree when the shrine building was built about 400 years ago, and has been affectionately known as the "Iccho Tree" since ancient times.
It has one root and seven trunks, and is 400 years old, 27m tall, and 11m in circumference, making it one of the largest in the prefecture. It has also been designated as a prefectural natural monument.
In autumn, there is a ginkgo festival, where a tea ceremony is held on the grounds, and at the nearby community center you can sample pickles brought by local people.

Best time to see yellow leaves: Around late November
