Now, the autumn colors are arriving at big parks and gardens in Central Tokyo. This weekend, I came to Showa Memorial Park at Tachikawa, where Gingko trees are said to be showing beautiful yellow leaves.
I arrived here in the early morning and found that plenty of people are already in the park. It seems like they are holding a town festival.
Well, I found this fluffy Japanese pampas grass in the very beginning of the park. Everything is going well!
I crossed the bridge over the big avenue while going to the paid area. The town of Tachikawa itself does have autumn colors.
I paid 410 yen and entered the area. Wow! Amazing!! Gingko trees grow all along the square while colorful flowers add gorgeous taste to them.
I walked into the Gingko street. It was relaxing and comfortable to walk under the yellow leaves. It reminds me of sakura street of Meguro River this year.
I shooted the view from the shade. There were many families and tourists spending happy moments in the Gingko street.
After enjoying the Gingko street, I arrived at the pond. Autumn colors of Sakura trees welcomed us. A bit dazzling, haha.
There were a big Sakura tree with its reflection on the pond. Sakura trees enjoy people not only in spring but also in autumn.
I found beautifully-shaped colorful leaves. I was like hearing the sound of children playing with some toys.
I came across such yellow leaves with the white trunks.
Plus, here's a heavy black tree with beautiful orange leaves. It says the name is Lindera glauca. This park has a variety of autumn colors.
Indeed, you can run around the park by bicycle, too. The cycling road is surrounded by autumn colors like this. It must be pretty comfortable to run in the cool air!
Trees with various colors are growing together. This park is really a good place to shoot autumn colors in Tokyo.
When I was walking along the pond, I found this vivid red color in a low place. It looks nice. Maybe this is the first vivid red Japanese maple leaves this year.
Finally, I arrived at the entrance of the Japanese garden. The autumn colors in the entrance let me hold high expectations for the inside.
Oh!! What a nice street!!!
There are leaves of various beautiful colors well-arranged by the admins of the garden.
As you see, there are quite a few people trying to photograph the best shots of autumn colors.
Japanese maple leaves are growing over the small river. It looks very Japanese.
The small river was decorated with the colorful fallen leaves. It makes me feel the sense of autumn.
There was a bridge in the inner part of the garden. People were enjoying walking across the bridge with the autumn colors.
Last photo from the garden is bonsai. Indeed, there is a bonsai area in the garden, which has tens of beautiful bonsai pots. This is also a nice point of Showa Memorial Park.
By the way, I found one wild cat in the park, too.
It looks graceful, isn't it?
Then, it went into a sleeping session. I thank this park and the cat for the happy moment.
