Japan Autumn Leaves Report

FYI
There is a very interesting ongoing report on the Japan guide site that would be of interest to anyone planning a fall foliage viewing to Japan in the future(we are).

The report gives good solid info on the sequence of the koyo line as it travels through Japan. It also obviously gives the right timing dates for areas in Japan this year. If my early calculations are correct, the timing will be later next year if anyone else is interested or planning a trip

Aloha!

Just a quick note on this point -

I had an extra day yesterday at Narita and went up to the Narita temple where there was still some autumn color to be seen.

I hadn't been to the temple before and was simply knocked out. What a tremendous resource so close to the airport - a far better use of a few hours than hanging out or going into the city only to turn around and come back.

Here are two photos taken on the weekend at Kabuto-yama, between Kobe and Osaka. This is about three hundred metres in altitude, and further west in Japan, illustrating the sequence of colour-change spread:

Nice photos, Will. A fall foliage tour is on our (very long) list.
