A Living Fossil

The Ginkgo trees have changed color now, and are beautiful!


You can spot Ginkgo trees because their leaves look like little fans.

Ginkgos live for thousands of years, and date back to the Jurrasic period. Because of this, they are known as living fossils.

The Ginkgos are the only trees that survived the Hiroshima bombing. They were charred, but are now flourishing.


See you later!
