  • Ginkgo biloba may Green was 11 months at the end of the yellow leaves just in time, foreign tourists sitting on the carpet of Ginkgo posing, had a photo. Took a walk around sanshiro pond for the first time, but this is the city? and much is filled with nature was a time very luxurious.

  • The campus is the home of the old aristocracy, the red and so historical dish. Yasuda Auditorium, symbolizing the student movement for 68 years of unusual student dining room in the basement, which strongly recommended.

  • From the University of Tokyo entrance until the Yasuda Auditorium containing ginkgo was so nice. Contrast lined with falling leaves dyed in yellow as it is easily found. Komagome station on the of the Faculty of agriculture, Ginkgo was clean. Just group-San (Japanese elderly) a little forgotten manners, took a group photo is unfortunate. All publicly accessible because while respecting each others explore what you want to. Is the attraction of the fall.

  • Campus with beautiful scenery composed by its symbolic gingko trees and grand-ish architecture. In Autumn all the trees turn yellow and the roads will transform into yellow carpets. Apart from the scenery and architecture, there is a lot of history in this school worth finding out about too.
  • Coeg sekali anda!!!
