Japan’s seasonal beauty never ceases to amaze us. Visitors crowd the country’s parks and gardens for cherry blossoms in spring and migrate up north for skiing and snowboarding in winter. In autumn, mother nature paints Japan in chunky brush strokes of burnt red and orange.

We’re talking of course about koyo, or changing autumn leaves. Hiking through the Japan Alps, riding a heart-stopping cable car over dense forests, or simply walking in the park are all good ways to enjoy the bursting autumn colors.

Typically the koyo season lasts from late-September to early December with the earliest leaves changing in northern Hokkaido and sprouting southward in a wave.

We’ve broken down the best spots for fall foliage viewing by region, to help you plan your trip. Crisp air and dramatic views await.
