Arita's Giant Ginkgo Tree (有田の大公孫樹)

3.5

Precious Wood

This ginkgo tree at Izumiyama Benzaiten-jinja Shrine is about 40-meters high, 12-meters around at the roots, and has a crown reaching 31-meters east to west. It's about 1,000 years old. It could well be the largest ginkgo tree in Japan. It was designated a national Natural Monument in 1926. Every year from mid to late November, the leaves this enormous tree turn yellow, a brilliant show for the crowds of visitors.

Review of Izumiyama Large Ginkgo Tree

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/10/23 Large Ginko tree
Near Izumiyama Benzaiten Shrine, there is a large Ginko tree. It is designated as a special natural treasure. From JR Kamiarita station, it takes less than 10 minutes’ walk. It is worth taking a look.

大通りに面しておらず、少し中に入っていったところにありました。1000年以上経っているとのことでした。車を止めるところがないので、泉山から歩いて行くことをおすすめします。

泉山磁石場から近いところにあります。クルマは三台くらいしか駐められません。樹齢1000年を超える巨大なイチョウは国の天然記念物。全体を写真に収めようとすると苦労するくらいに巨大です。樹木の一番太いところは12mあるそうです。

訪れた時は丁度紅葉の終わり頃で、見応えがありました。真下に家があり一体化しているようです。最近の台風で枝が落ちてくる被害があるのだそうで、この家は移転が決まったという話も聞...

          Away from the fast-paced cities of mainland Japan, Kyushu's Saga prefecture offers quaint towns and cities known for their traditional crafts, particularly ceramics. Rich in kaolin (a type of clay), Saga became the homeland of Arita ware, a delicate, decorative porcelain that is now celebrated worldwide and can be discovered in the towns of Arita, Imari, and Karatsu.
