Autumn in Japan is like a framed canvas of blazing fire, dazzling onlookers with fall foliage in vibrant hues of red, orange, and yellow. Acknowledged around the world as one of the most popular seasons to visit Japan, it is a Japanese custom to visit the country’s scenic areas during this time. City parks and the countryside are draped in the spectacular colours of red maple and yellow ginko trees. In some areas there are even trees planted specifically for this pastime. Momijigari , the viewing of autumn leaves, allows families and romantics to appreciate the splendour of nature together.
