Hachioji Ginkgo Festival 八王子いちょう祭り

Koshu Road, Hachioji-shi, Tokyo | Area around Ryonan Park, from Oiwakecho Intersection to Kobotoke Sekisho ruins
Mid November 2023

In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.

The stunning rows of ginkgo trees along Hachioji's Koshu Road (also known as Koshu-kaido Road) were planted during the Showa era. Grab a tsuko tegata (a wooden block that served as a transit pass in ancient times) and take a tour around 12 old checkpoints, or meander around the bazaar, where stalls serve up local delicacies. There will also be a smaller version of the usual classic car parade this year. This annual ginkgo festival is the perfect place to get to know Hachioji and its residents, while enjoying taking in a little retro nostalgia. How about taking a trip back in time for the weekend?
