≪Autumn Leaves Viewing Spot≫ Yasukuni Jinja Shrine
Not only ginkgo tree-lined but maple trees in the Japanese garden are popular autumn leaves spots
The origin of Yasukuni Jinja Shrine is Shokonsha established at Kudan in Tokyo in the second year of the Meiji era (1869) by the will of the Emperor Meiji. In 1879, it was renamed Yasukuni Jinja Shrine. 2,466,000 spirits of those killed in battle from the end of the Edo era through the Pacific War are enshrined here. Yushukan on the grounds displays articles of those enshrined and related historical materials.
The yellow leaves of ginkgo trees that are over 20 meters tall are splendid and many people visit each year. Besides that, you can enjoy the autumn leaves of Japanese maple at the Shinchi Teien (Sacred Pond Garden), so please don’t miss it.
