Sakugoro Hirase observed swimming sperm (motile spermatozoids) for the first time in the seeds of a female Ginkgo tree growing in the Botanical Garden of the University of Tokyo in Japan on September 9, 1896. Hirase proved that the Ginkgo had an intermediate position between ferns and conifers and therefore Professor M. Engler established a new family Ginkgoacea (1897), order Ginkgoales (1898).

UENO PARK is a spacious public park in the Ueno district of Tokyo, Japan. The park was established in 1873 on lands formerly belonging to the temple of Kan'ei-ji. Amongst the country's first public parks. The home of a number of major museums, Ueno Park is also celebrated in spring for its cherry blossoms and hanami. In recent times the park and its attractions have drawn over ten million visitors a year, making it Japan's most popular city park. The park has some 8,800 trees. There is a further 24,800 of shrubs. Shinobazu Pond is a small lake with an area of 16 ha, extensive lotus beds, and marshland. It provides an important wintering ground for many kinds of birds, including some rare species. The central island houses a shrine to Benzaiten, goddess of fortune. The area was once full of "rendezvous teahouses", equivalent of the modern love hotel. In all there are some eight hundred cherry trees in the park, although with the inclusion of those belonging to the Tōshō-gū shrine, temple buildings, and other neighbouring points, the total reaches some twelve hundred. Ueno Park is home to a number of museums. The Tokyo National Museum was founded in 1872. In the same year the Ministry of Education Museum opened, now the National Museum of Nature and Science. The National Museum of Western Art was founded in 1959. Other museums include the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, dating back to 1926, and Shitamachi Museum of 1980. The park was also chosen as home for the Japan Academy (1879), Tokyo School of Fine Arts(1889), and Tokyo School of Music (1890). The first western-style concert hall in the country, the Sōgakudō Concert Hall of 1890 (ICP) was donated to the ward in 1983 and reconstructed on another site in the park, where it is used for concerts. The Tokyo Bunka Kaikan opened in 1961 as a venue for opera and ballet, in celebration of the five hundredth anniversary of the foundation of the city ofbEdo. The Imperial Library was established as the national library in 1872 and opened in Ueno Park in 1906; the National Diet Library opened in Chiyoda in 1948 and the building now houses the International Library of Children's Literature.

The gingko tree was once the dominant tree on Earth. The only surviving genus, the Gingko Biloba, is a popular tree for temperate climates. The campus of NCR in Dayton, Ohio, had a lot of these trees lining the streets. My Dad tried planting a couple of these in his yard in Greenville SC but they died from heat and neglect.
We bought a Ginkgo tree last week and hope to get it in the ground tomorrow. Love this shot! Ginkgo Leaves James Field

“No truth can cure the sadness we feel from losing a loved one. No truth, no sincerity, no strength, no kindness, can cure that sorrow. All we can do is see that sadness through to the end and learn something from it, but what we learn will be no help in facing the next sadness that comes to us without warning.” ― Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood
