This is the most famous ginkgo tree in Kyoto. Located in Nishi-Honganji Temple. It is said older than 400 years. The trunk circumference is 6.5m, the height is 7.0m. The branches spread laterally, and the width is more than twice the height.
It is called Water-Blowing Ginkgo because it blew water at the time of the fire. I don't think it's true, but it's likely that it didn't burn when it was hit by a big fire.
