With the off and on cold fronts that have been sweeping through the country, my husband and I decided we should probably get out and take a walk and admire the foliage before it starts getting too chilly out.
Much like during the cherry blossom season, there are a lot of websites dedicated to telling you which spots are predicted to have the best foliage and when, and which spots are already reading for viewing. In my opinion, this is one of the best ones: Nihon Zenkoku Kōyo Hyakkei
Unfortunately we didn’t check the foliage forecast (kōyo yohō) before going, and most of the trees at the park we visited had yet to show their fall colors. Still, they had a small festival going where you could see flowers grown by the locals, rides, and a petting zoo for the kiddies.
I think the pictures below do a good job of summarizing the trip!
Have you been foliage viewing yet? What are your best recommendations? As always, feel free to comment!
