Mt. Mitake in Autumn

The fall colors (紅葉) aren’t ripe on Mt. Mitake, near Tokyo, yet, but if you are in or near Tokyo, be sure to head up the mountain in about a month (November 15-30 time frame) for some of nature’s beauty.

Fall colors in January?

koyo autumn colors in january in tokyo

I have mentioned before how late autumn hits the Tokyo area. I’m used to fall colors in October. They don’t begin in Tokyo until November and don’t reach their peak until very late in the month or even early December.

I took today’s photo near the Imperial Palace (皇居) in January!

Autumn on Mt. Mitake

Fall is in the air in my current neck of the woods (Oregon), and some of the trees have begun to change color. In Japan (around Tokyo anyway) autumn doesn’t come until November, at the earliest, so there are still a couple of months before things look like today’s photo. I took this pic in late November on Mt. Mitake, not far from Tokyo.
