Autumn Leaves Packages
Japan Autumn Leaves Holiday Packages
Autumn leaves are called Koyo in Japanese. Koyo marks the end of the hot and humid summer and the arrival of the pleasant climate of autumn. Autumn in Japan marks a period of mild temperatures in the middle of the day with mornings and nights becoming cooler day by day. The cooling climate creates the natural masterpieces of the colourful autumn leaves in Japan when leaves turn blazing red, brilliant yellow and warm orange. The locals have enjoyed the traditional seasonal event of “momiji-gari” (viewing coloured leaves) throughout history. Why don’t you join them with our Japan Autumn Leaves holiday packages.
From late September to early December the “Koyo-zensen”, or “autumn leaves front”, makes its way across Japan. The changing colours of the autumn leaves travels down a line on the map of Japan, providing the spectacular feature of autumn leaves in Japan. In contrast with cherry blossoms, autumn leaves start travelling from the north in Hokkaido, through the main island of Honshu down to Kyushu Island.
You can only see the coloured leaves in Japan during autumn. There’s no better place to view trees exquisitely dressed in the gorgeous colours of autumn.
The Japan Autumn Leaves holiday packages take you to Japan’s best sites where you can be part of nature’s masterpiece in a brilliant display of autumn colours.
*These packages are self-guided, so you can start whenever you like and you can add or reduce days as desired. We can re-arrange the plan to create a unique package for your individual needs!
