#21: Koyo spots
Around the time we are in Japan the koyo viewing time is ending in
Nikko and sort of in the middle period for the Tokyo area. So here are
a number of good koyo
spots for our visit as
recommended by japan-guide.com
First some koyo spots in Tokyo:
(Komagome Station (JR Yamanote Line))
Japanese landscape garden in central Tokyo. Best towards end of
November. Already mentioned in trip suggestion #4.
Yoyogi Koen (
Station (JR Yamanote Line))
Western style park in central Tokyo. Best in last half of November.
Already mentioned in trip suggestion #11.
Koishikawa Korakuen (
Station (JR Chuo/Sobu Line))
style landscape garden in central Tokyo. Best towards end of November.
It is adjacent to Tokyo Dome city, so within walking distance of the
hotel and it is sort of part of trip suggestion #14 Kanda.
Koyo spots around Tokyo:
wooded mountain, roughly one hour west of Shinjuku, already mentioned
in a seperate trip suggestion #8 . The leaves should be best in the
second half of November.
The Oku-Nikko region
around Lake Chuzenji and Yumoto Onsen should be particularly nice for
koyo viewing. Depending on the elevation the trees should be most
beautiful between late September and early November. Nikko is suggested
as trip #19.
The area around Lake Ashi should be particularly beautiful. The autumn
leaves should be best in early November.
Fuji Five Lakes
Fuji in combination with the lakes and autumn leaves should make a
spectacular sight. The autumn leaves should be best in early November.
We are going there in the middle as trip #5 has been 'approved'.
The progress of the koyo front can be followed here
Japanese). As I write this, the leaves have turned red in north and the
yellow leaves are closing in on Nikko.
