Places where you can enjoy autumn leaves in Tokyo
Japanese autumn is all about the autumn leaves. It is as if the fields and mountains are painted red and yellow, and the Japanese saying: kinshu, or autumn as beautiful as brocade, is perfectly fitting for such beautifully painted mountains. Because the period can be enjoyed for longer than cherry blossoms, it is easy to make travel plans, which is great. Here are some places that you can see the autumn leaves around the capital, while sightseeing around Tokyo.
#1 Rikugien Garden
The 2017 light up is open from November 18th (Saturday) to December 6th (Wednesday).
#2 Koishikawa Korakuen Garden
This park’s autumn leaves are beautiful too, and can be enjoyed from late November to early December.
#3 Shiba Park
The beauty of the mountain can be enjoyed throughout all four seasons, but the beauty of the mountain range during the autumn leaves season is especially an astonishing sight. Just a stone’s throw away from the city center, Mt. Takao is a recommended spot where you can come and enjoy the clear air, and vivid contrast of red and yellow.
