Autumn colors in November

Although the snowy season has already started in cold areas, we can still enjoy autumn foliage in many areas.


At the following spots, autumn colors are now at their peak.


Korankei Gorge(香嵐渓) in Aichi Prefecture is one of  famous autumn leave viewing spots. I'd like to go there once at least.

  1. Hi Ichinen! Oh, how I wish to see these beautiful autumn colors in your wonderful Japan. I really wish I could be there to see.
    Over here in Holland we had an Indian summer: it means hot temperature for this time of the year (autumn) and now we see the trees with the most beautiful colors, but now they are loosing their leaves. So we also had the joy of beautiful colors.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Greetings, Ilona

    1. In Japan, the foliage season started later than usual because of lingering heat in September this year. We will be able to enjoy autumn colors until mid December in city centers.

  2. I've never seen the autumn foliage in Japan, not yet, but those pictures are truly fantastic. Some places are popular for autumn colors in Canada but those pictures look better than anything I've seen here!

    1. I have seen Canada's magnificent autumn colors on TV. In Japan, autumn leave viewing spots include many temples and shrines.
