Jingu Gaien is also known as’ God Miyanomori’ and is widely known.This name, which is worn with the scenery of the nature like the forest, will bring about a great imagination.The famous ginkgo trees are perfect for walking.

The history of the Meiji Jingu Gaien (the outer garden of the Meiji Shrine)

After the death of Meiji Emperor, the construction plan of Meiji Jingu was raised, and by the donation and volunteer from all over Japan, it was completed in the site where the Meiji Emperor’s funeral was held in 1926.

In the Meiji Jingu Construction Bureau, Orishimo built a ginkgo tree with gingko trees, and in 1924, the Shotoku Memorial Art Museum, the sports heat and the Sumojo, the swimming area, etc. were established as the sports heat was increased.

After the war, the road site on the ginkgo tree was transferred to Tokyo, and the stadium was transferred to the National Stadium and rebuilt by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology in the stadium.Except for that part, Meiji Jingu’s outer garden is managed by Meiji Jingu Shrine and it is a vast and valuable natural nature, and it is a vast and valuable nature.

The redevelopment plan was also launched, and in 2006, the Kanto Branch of the Association of Landscape Consultants was set up by the Kanto Branch of the Japan Federation of Landscape Consultants’ Association for the promotion of the 2016 Tokyo Olympics. The NPO Shibuya Aoyama Landscape Improvement Organization proposed reconstruction plans for the Yoyogi Park and Jingu-gaien gardens.

In 2015, the new National stadium was rebuilt in the park, and the New National Stadium in the neighborhood was decided to be the main stadium in the 2020 Olympic Games.

At the 2018 expert meeting, the council discussed the redevelopment of the outer garden around the Meiji Shrine and showed a rough picture of the future.The construction of large-scale sports facilities and the draft plan are coming up, so specifically, it is decided by the Jingu and the landowners.In response to this, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government announced the Urban Development Guidelines, showing a better future.

In the Meiji Jingu Gaien Garden, ginkgo trees were selected in 1966, with a total of about half of the total number of silver ginkgo trees, which was chosen by the Tokyo Metropolitan referendum.There are 146 ginkgo trees lined up in a row, and it is originally grown from the same ginkgo tree as the Shinjuku Gyoen, so it looks like the height is the same, so it looks beautiful.

In autumn, when ginkgo trees are dyed yellow, it is also characteristic that a lot of ginkgo nuts can be picked by walking along the avenue, because the female strain is 70% of the ginkgo trees of ginkgo trees.I recommend you to leave it as a commemoration for the photo taking so that it is very beautiful Instagram.
