Ginkgo Tree at Jonichi-ji Temple

Beloved by the locals, this Great Gingko Tree bears over 180 liters of fruit by the end of October. It has been long believed that women who couldn't produce breastmilk would lactate after drinking a decoction made by shaving off the breast-shaped aerial roots hanging from the thick branches above their breasts.
