• Yoyogi Park
Just a short walk from Harajuku Station in central Tokyo, Yoyogi Park is a perfect choice. It is one of the massive parks in the capital and shares space with Meiji Shrine. It consists of acres of trees, trails, water features, and flowers, making it a great place to spend an afternoon admiring the koyo.
• Icho Namiki Avenue
Tokyo’s downtown area is one of the finest spots to catch a glimpse of koyo. Icho Namiki Avenue has breathtaking gingko trees that bloom from late November to early December. This strip is perfect for a walk, but you can also sit back, relax, and munch at the Royal Garden Cafe while feasting your eyes with beautiful autumn leaves.
• Rikugien Gardens
An Edo-style garden built in the early 1700s and restored to its former glory in 1878, Rikugien is one of the oldest parks in Tokyo. The garden is lit up with illumination displays. A small admission fee of ¥300 is required.
