Autumn is one of the most beautiful seasons in Japan, and a favorite of the locals as the weather is just nice for trekking and talking walks in gardens to enjoy the autumn colors of leaves from yellow to gold and crimson red. Here are the popular autumn leaf viewing spots that you will see on this trip.
Tokyo has no lack of vast and perfectly cultivated gardens, such as the Shinjuku Gyoen, that was first built for a feudal lord. This sprawling garden has a Momijiyama, or Maple Mountain, which is the best place to see the azure colors of the exquisite Japanese Maple.
The sight of rows of gingko trees is also a classic autumn scene, and the Icho Namiki (Gingko Avenue) located outside the Meiji Jingu Gaien Park is stunning in its almost glowing yellow glory. The trees here are pruned to a uniform conical shape, making it the avenue postcard perfect.
Another highly popular sight for autumn leaf hunting is the Koshikawa Korakuen. This landscaped garden has all the elements of a classic Japanese garden, with bridges, and strategically placed Japanese gardens and rock benches perfect for taking your selfie or wefie framed by bright red momiji leaves.
Compare the beauty of the Korakuen with the Rikugien, another landscape garden that is fit for royalty. Other than a hilltop vantage point where you can get an overview of the garden, the Togetsukyo Bridge is a spectacular photo that you must have in your album. Sit down and enjoy a cup of matcha at the teahouse here.
Last but not least, the ever popular park at Ueno, also takes on a spectrum of autumn colors, is a must-visit.
