The best Places to see Autumn Colors in Tokyo

Where to marvel at stunning autumn foliage in Japan’s capital

After last week’s blog post on the best spots to see Sakura Cherry blossoms in Tokyo, today we are going to be taking a look at the 2nd most popular season to visit Japan: autumn color season. From around mid-to-late November to December, trees in Japan are illuminated in vibrant reds, oranges and yellows, creating a beautiful atmosphere around the country. Here are my favorite spots to see them in Tokyo:

1. Nezu Shrine

2. Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens

3. Koishikawa Botanical Garden

4. Shinjuku Gyoen

5. Okutama

6. Kawaguchiko

Just like during the Sakura season, these are just a few of my personal favorites to see the autumn colors in and around Tokyo; but there are countless more hiding in every corner of the city. So, if you happen to be in Japan during Fall, I encourage you to go out and discover your own favorites!
