Japan is a country known for its distinct four seasons. The summer is marked with bouts of rain and heat, while the winter is marked with cooler temperatures and stunning illuminations along prominent landmarks like Tokyo Tower. While Spring is marked with cherry blossoms and other Japanese flowers, Japan's crisp Autumn season cannot be missed. Autumn is an incredible time to visit Japan as the pollen from spring and heat from summer have since passed. As the country begins to cool down, gorgeous autumn leaves fill the skies along our favorite landmarks in Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima, and Southern Japan.
Just as in the spring when the Japanese go cherry blossom viewing, Autumn is spent enjoying the beauty of orange, red, and yellow foliage. The scenery among Japanese castle grounds and Buddhist temples transform drastically as the seasons change, creating a stunning picturesque sight. The crisp red, orange, and yellow hues blend together in perfect harmony and can be found along many of Japan's top tourist destinations. Travelers looking to enjoy a scenic vacation without the crowds of the spring are sure to enjoy Japan's autumn season.
During koyo season, many travelers opt to ride a bus through the mountains or enjoy a rope-way ride to see the fall colors. Many of Tokyo and Kyoto's Japanese gardens attract crowds of visitors, and some gardens and temples even offer colorful illumination shows at night. If you're traveling through Hiroshima, enjoying the fall leaves with momiji manju is highly recommended. Given momiji manju come in the shape of a maple leaf, they're the perfect snack to enjoy while the leaves fall off the trees.
