A BOUQUET OF GINKGO LEAVES.

It takes about 20 minutes from our house to Tokyo University by subway.



Yasuda Lecture Hall.


Tokyo university is the highest level one in Japan.



There is a Ginkgo tree-lined road in this campus.




There is a special kind of ginkgo tree near the road.




You can find this kind of a leaf with 1% of probability from this tree.




Collecting the leaves, I could make a bouquet of the ginkgo leaves.

This bouquet looks like a bouquet of yellow roses.




There is a pond in this campus named Sanshiro-Ike.




The name came from the famous novel's title.





There is a red gate in this campus.

This gate was made by a feudal Lord for wedding memorial for the Lord and the shogun's daughter about 130 years ago.


Because this campus was   the former feudal lord's site.


Sharing with Our World Tuesday.


Thanks for visiting this post.

  1. The Ginkgo tree, Ginkgo biloba, known as ginkgo or gingko and also as the maidenhair tree, is the only living species in the division Ginkgophyta, all others being extinct. It is recognizably similar to fossils dating back 270 million years.
    We have several Ginkgo trees here in our spa gardens as well and it's one of our favourite tree species!
    Like you we have some ginkgo leaves on a shelf at home in our appartment corridor; even a dry ginkgo leave ist a little beauty for a longer period of time.
    All the best from Germany, Uwe.

      Thank you very much for your comment. A ginkgo belongs 1 species,1 genus and 1 family just same as a human being.

  6. What a lovely urban campus with beautiful greenbelts. Ginko leaves are very special. I have a pair of silver earrings shaped like the leaf you've shown.

  12. This is interesting to note that the gingko leaves could be rolled together into a bouquet of yellow roses. Nice!..... I also heard that Tokyo and Kyoto Universities are top in Japan as well as the world's Top 100.
    I hope to visit this Tokyo & Waseda Universities when I next visit Tokyo. I remember that you graduated from Waseda too.

      Thank you very much for your comment. My elder brother graduated from Tokyo University. I graduated from Waseda University.
      There were many sightseeing foreign travelers from Asia in this campus. I hope you will come to Tokyo again in near future.

  13. その銀杏並木を秋の光を感じながら歩いてみたいです。銀杏の葉から素敵な薔薇の花、感性豊かなんですね。安田講堂と言えば安田講堂の攻防を思い出します。その年は私の大学受験の年、東大入試は行われませんでした。残念!まぁ私には関係ないようで、でも他の国立大学の倍率が上がったという意味では影響受けました。

      ありがとうございます。 そうですか、寅年でしょうか。 私は去年、ここを滑って、再挑戦と思っていました。
       試験が有っても落ちたと思いますが。

  14. That is a beautiful campus. I love the symmetry of the lecture hall. I remember seeing Ginko trees in San Francisco and thought their leaves were interesting but I never thought of making a bouquet with them. Very clever. They look like a cluster of primroses.

  16. Hello Minoru, I love the reflections in the pond. The ginko trees are enormous. I've only seen a very small one at the Botanic Garden in Helsinki. The leaves are very pretty.

  17. 斉藤さんは頭脳明晰な方なんですね。東大を受験できるくらいなんですから。 私の友人に東大出身の方がいますが、尊敬してます。また東大出身の方とデートしたことがありますけど、不思議なオーラがあって、緊張しっぱなしで、やはり別の世界の人のように感じました、、、あは、もう遠い昔の話ですが、懐かしいです。銀杏の写真で、ある歌を想い出しました。 ガロの歌で、ちょっとしんみりする歌です。 ナイスなポスト、ありがとうございました。

      こんばんは。 いえいえ、たまたまです。ガロといえば「学生街の喫茶店」でしょうか、私の行った大学では、雀荘ばかりでロマンチックな雰囲気は全くありませんでした。
       きっとロマンチックな学生時代の思い出がおありだと、想像します。 
       兄が東大出身ですが、ただのお爺さんです。
