I seem to remember a certain fodorite predicting that fall would be a little later this year in Japan more than six months ago.......

IIRC it was said that the week of April 3, 2011 would be a nice week to be in Tokyo or Kyoto.

9 months in advance......what a foolish person.....no links...just blind faith,lol

Thanks HT. Does that say I'm unlikely to see fall color in the Japan Alps the first week of October?

thursdaysd, maybe in the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Pass area of the Alps. It is expensive to do the pass though with the private transport systems....

Thank you, chinese_chicken, that's reassuring.

HT, we'll vaguely cross paths, as I'll be in Tokyo then Hakone the last few days in November.
