looking back

November 30, 2010

So, as lovely as leaf viewing is, there is also some humour to it for me. Tokyo being as it is, has a lot of people. And if you find something worthwhile to see, or eat, or do, you can pretty much guarantee that there will be other people who found it too. Most likely, someone also wrote it up in a special travel guide with pointers on transit, area etc, or, in the case of leaf viewing, has turned it in to an iphone app that updates you on different areas and the state of their leaves, ranging from still green, to all dropped.

So, just for fun, here is what the leaf viewing areas look like.

This is the famous row of ginko trees at the entrance to gaienjingu park.

Here is the full view.

Under the canopy at the leaf viewing spot we went to out of the city.

People taking pictures towards the canopy with a kimono clad model in front. There were at least a half a dozen “model spots” that were equally busy.

Didn’t it look more peaceful and tranquil yesterday?
