Look up! A week of sunny days and fall colors in the sky

今週は晴れた日が多くて、紅葉がすばらしいです。ファーマーズマーケットに行く途中で、代々木公園を通過しました。駅に歩くときも、一番きれいな景色は上にあります。

This past week has been sunny and gorgeous with fall leaves. I’ve biked through Yoyogi Park a few times for the farmers markets. Even walking to the station, the best views are above.

Bright golden ginko against black night sky

中野で、金色のイチョウが夜空に向かって光を放っています。大きい道路沿いの長い並木のいくつかは早く紅葉して、他はまだです。見上げてみましょう!

Golden ginko leaves radiate against a black night sky in Nakano. Ginko is the official tree of Tokyo, and stylized versions appear on many sidewalk railings. This week they are turning gold. I like how in a long row on major streets, some turn sooner, and others wait. Look up!
