Japan has many seasons, probably more than other countries. The Japanese love to celebrate, there are many national holidays during the year, in compensation for the only 1 week of holiday they get.
While everybody now thinks of the Sakura Season, especially beautiful as well is the Koyo 紅葉 in Kyoto 京都. Kyoto 京都, with it’s majestic temples surrounded by woods, makes a stunning image. When you arrive at the train station to the temple area, there is a “Leaf” schedule showing which color the leaves have at which temple.
I visited Kyoto 京都 at the middle/end of November to see those beautiful sceneries.
These are some of the temples I’ve visited during my Koyo 紅葉 journey:
