The Autumn Colors in Tokyo

The autumn colors in Tokyo is coming to the peak.  Just like cherry blossoms in spring, autumn foliage is a seasonal object of our affection.  It is really hard to tell where the best place is in Japan to see beautiful autumn foliage, but I can probably say that as far as ginkgo trees are concerned Tokyo is the best.
The photo was taken a couple of days ago in Ueno Park.  The place is also known for its cherry blossoms, under which people have parties when the flowers are in full bloom.  As to autumn leaves, instead of having a party, people just walk by to appreciate the beauty. Cold winter is just around the corner, and it is a nice brief moment to prepare for the end of the year and whatever is coming next.
