Hachioji Ginkgo Festival 2017
The long running annual Hachioji Ichou (Ginkgo) Festival celebrates the local communities and nature through a wide variety of attractions and events. Around 770 ginkgo trees line the Koshu Highway as it runs for 4km through Hachioji, and in the autumn season the ginkgo leaves turn a magnificent gold color. Join the residents, students and workers of the area as they invite visitors of all ages to interact, enjoy and experience the local nature and cultural charms. From food stalls to music stages, fun activities will line the streets under the towering golden canopies. Check the website for a full program of activities and a map of event locations.
