Splendid Fall Colors and a Sea of Clouds! Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo in Autumn
Fall is one of the most anticipated times of the year in Japan. In the forests, gardens, and parks, the foliage turns to fiery red and bright yellow. Since there are many days with clear weather, it’s a delight to wander outdoors and marvel at the contrast between the vibrant fall foliage and the blue sky. The custom of going out for the sole purpose of viewing the fall foliage is called “momijigari” in Japanese, with momiji being the word for “fall leaves.”
In Tokyo, the foliage turns red around the end of November, peaking in early December. The garden of Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo is one of the prime places to enjoy the fall leaves in the heart of the city.
