Waseda Ginkgos

Cherry trees are all the rage in Japan in spring and maples are famous in the fall, but not to be overlooked are the ginkgos (銀杏). They can be found in numbers in several parts of Tokyo including Harajuku, Ueno, and the Waseda University campus (pictured above).

The building featured in this photo is the Okuma Memorial Hall (大隈講堂). Famous speakers at the auditorium therein have included Bill Clinton, Nelson Mandela, Albert Einstein, Robert Kennedy, Bill Gates, Henry Kissinger, and yours truly.
