The Ginkgo Tree of Uchino

This ginkgo tree has a very unusual shape as it leans in response to the wind blowing down from the valley.
It is a gigantic tree that is approximately 400 years old, 34.1m tall, and 7.6m in circumference, and was once called the ”Couple Ginkgo" along with the large female ginkgo.
The leaves start to turn yellow from mid-November onwards, but since it is a male ginkgo, it does not bear fruit.
On February 18, 2004, it was designated as a natural monument by Fukuoka Prefecture.
Best time to see yellow leaves: Late November to early December

*Uchinojuku Exhibition Hall and Nagasakiya are currently closed.
