Festivals & Events
Situated between the office buildings of Aoyama's business district and Meiji Jingu Gaien Park is Icho Namiki, one of the most scenic walkways in all of Tokyo.
Icho Namiki is easily accessed by public transport.
Take either the Hanzomon Line or Oedo Line to Aoyama-Itchome Station. Exit 1 is closest to the avenue.
In English, Icho Namiki can be translated as “row of ginkgo trees,” which is essentially what this is.
However, don't let its straightforward name fool you; this avenue is much more beautiful than it sounds. Located about a block from Aoyama-Itchome subway station, this tree-lined strip is particularly popular during the koyo (autumn color) season in November and December.
As the weather cools and the days begin to grow shorter, the trees that line Icho Namiki change color. Tall pillars of golden leaves make this avenue a photographer's paradise during November and December.
