10-The Great Ginkgo大銀杏

The great ginkgo tree which was about 1,000 years old was blown down on March 10, 2010. The great ginkgo was where the 3rd Minamoto shogun, Sanetomo, was assassinated by his nephew, Kugyo, who had hidden himself behind the tree. Thus, it is also called Hiding Ginkgo. Presently, many sprouts are visible emerging from the remaining roots; and they are growing vigorously.
