Autumn Leaves Tours

Autumn Leaves Tours

The changing of the leaves in autumn is one of the best times to visit Japan, when parks and gardens nationwide put on an unforgettable display of color.
Although cherry blossoms blooming in spring are the most common seasonal image associated with the Land of the Rising Sun, each of the four seasons come with their own unique charms. And the appeal of autumn in Japan is particularly robust, as seasonal trees of various kinds slowly leave off their green summer raiment in favor of livelier colors. The stately maple and bright rowan present foliage ranging from regal burgundy to flashy red, often with a liberal splash of orange, while the proud gingko dyes her leaves in the hue of sunshine gold. As much symbolic impact as the cherry blossom claims over Japanese culture, the autumn leaves have undoubtedly left their mark, having been mentioned in some of the oldest literature, featured on traditional kimono, and used in seasonal cuisine. The autumn foliage even colors local expressions, with the image of red leaves in fall used creatively to suggest emotion. But with the inevitable approach of winter, all autumn leaves burn to russet brown under the sun as they finally fall to earth, leaving tourists with a viewing window only a little longer than their springtime counterparts. November is the best (and only) month for viewing autumn leaves at their brightest, with a little regional flexibility as you move from northern Hokkaido to southern Nagasaki. The leaves may be viewed anywhere in the country, with Takamatsu’s Ritsurin Park, Kanazawa’s Kenrokuen Garden, and Kyoto’s Arashiyama area ranked among the best overall.
