Japan is a country known for its four distinct seasons. While the summer is marked with rain and heat and the winter is perfect for illuminations, Japan's crisp Autumn season is not to be missed. Autumn is an incredible time to visit Japan with the pollen from spring and heat from summer having passed. As the country begins to cool down, gorgeous autumn leaves fill the skies as you pleasantly stroll through town.
Just as in the spring when the Japanese go cherry blossom viewing, Autumn is spent enjoying the beauty of orange and yellow foliage. The scenery among castle grounds and temples change drastically with the season change, creating a stunning picturesque sight. The crisp red, orange, and yellow hues blend together in beautiful 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 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 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.
