The sprawling park of Showa Kinen is one of the first places in the Tokyo region to see autumn foliage, due to its slightly cooler temperatures. The rows of gingkos just inside the main entrance gate are a golden sight beginning in mid-November but it is worth making the long walk across the park to the traditional Japanese garden. There, maples turn vibrant hues of red and orange, providing the perfect backdrop for several tea houses on site.
Entrance to Showa Kinen is ¥410, but children under 6 are free. There is also a section of the park - with a small lane of gingko trees - that can be enjoyed for free.
