Experience the enchanting beauty of Japan’s autumn leaves on a Luxury Japan Autumn Leaves Private Tour. Though the beauty of springtime is talked about more often, autumn could easily be its equal in loveliness. The fall changes the leaves of many Japanese trees to vibrant colors before they fall: the maple burns to a fiery orange, the cherry and rowan blush red, the ginkgo and beech shine a golden yellow. In this luxury private tour itinerary, our tour specialists have handpicked the best spots to view the autumn colors, pairing them with special cultural experiences and seasonal cuisine.

The tour begins in Tokyo, which offers plenty of opportunity to view the seasonal change in the urban jungle. The East Garden of the Imperial Palace offers groves of maples near the ruins of Edo Castle, and Icho Namiki Street which runs out from picturesque Meiji Shrine, featuring rows of tall ginkgo trees with yellow leaves like golden towers. We include authentic local activities like a tour of the Toyosu Fish Market, shopping in the upscale Ginza District, visiting Asakusa Sensoji Temple, and taking in the view from Tokyo Skytree. We go from there to Hakone and Mount Fuji, to cruise Lake Ashi in a pirate ship, ride the Hakone Ropeway to the rugged volcanic landscape of Owakudani, and even visit the 5th station of Mount Fuji (in clear weather). We also appreciate the local culture, admiring the creative installations at the Hakone Open-Air Museum, and the dyed silk kimono at the Itchiku Kubota Art Museum.

We travel from there to Koyasan – the head mountain temple complex of the Shingon School of Japanese Buddhism, stopping along the way to take in the autumn colors at Osaka Castle and Todaiji Temple in Nara. In Koyasan, you’ll find the trees near Kongobuji Temple and Danjo Garan decked in autumn finery. But you’ll also be able to experience for yourself the life of a Buddhist monk – walk the sacred graveyard at Okunoin, eat a traditional vegetarian “shojin ryori” meal, and even spend the night in a temple lodging. After Koyasan comes the ancient city of Kyoto, where fall foliage decorates the courtyards and gardens of the Golden Pavilion, Nijo Castle, Tenryuji Temple, and Kiyomizu Temple. Perhaps the loveliest place is in the Arashiyama District, as you walk Togetsukyo Bridge and look over the thick forest covering the distant hills, where nature’s brush has splashed the dark green canvas with flashes of gold, orange, and red. Experience Kyoto’s traditional culture, too, learning green tea ceremony and Zen meditation at Kodaiji Temple, and watching a Geisha performance while partaking of Kyoto Kaiseki cuisine.

Join a Luxury Japan Autumn Leaves Private tour and enjoy the beautiful fall foliage of Japan together with unmissable, authentic experiences, delicious local cuisine, and both luxury and rare accommodations. Our private luxury tours are fully customizable, so was can alter the itinerary to fit your vision of the perfect Japan autumn leaves luxury tour. Transportation is facilitated by our comfortable and convenient private vans, and you will be accompanied by one of our friendly, professional English-speaking guides.
