Japan is well-known for seasonal beauty; its splendid cherry blossoms and regal autumn leaves present travelers with a dilemma: which should I plan to enjoy on while on vacation in Japan? The town of Obara offers the ideal solution: come and see both the autumn leaves and cherry blossoms at the same time!
