Autumn is the season that gradually welcomes the colder winter of the year after the summer’s peak. Here are three fantastic places in Japan to see the best autumn foliage:

Jozankei, Hokkaido

While canoeing or riding a horse, you can enjoy the beauty of the crimson and golden foliage in Jozankei. If you take the ropeway to the top of the mountain, you might also be able to see the autumnal foliage.

Minoo Park, Osaka

Minoo Park is well-known for its autumn leaf displays. Another popular sight is Minoo Falls, which is surrounded by nature and has a hiking trail leading to it.

Momijidani Park, Hiroshima

It takes around 10 minutes to walk from Itsukushima Shrine to Momijidani Park, which is a great place to view the fall leaves. About 700 maple trees line the park, and they display vibrant hues every year from mid- to late November.

The viewing of the changing leaves is a tradition in Japan that dates back many years. Autumn officially starts in September, so we hope you explore and enjoy the magnificent autumnal scenery in Japan!
