You Need To See What Fall Foliage in Kyoto Looks Like..

One thing i didn’t know about Japan was the crimson leaves in Kyoto. Every time someone mentions how pretty Japans scenery is I immediately would think of cherry blossom trees. When i first started looking at japan as a travel option for november was because I wanted to fly to Thailand but there was a transfer in Tokyo. Thinking of how awesome it would be to go back to the place where i first started falling in love with travel I told Aaron my plan and he was so excited!

Our days were 23rd and 24th but they say it can be anywhere from mid to late november weather depending.


Have you been to Japan during fall? Where’s your favourite place for leave viewing? Do your leaves turn this red?

    I went to Japan in early December and the leaves were amazing! I had never seen anything like it before. Also I’m so pleased I discovered your blog Shelby, it’s quickly becoming one of my favourites!

    Wowww Shelby these look stunning. You were so lucky to be there for those two days. Had no idea it only lasted for such a short space of time. Definitely something to bare in mind when I finally get round to booking my tickets. Going to Japan has been a dream of mine for a while now and seeing photos like this only make me more excited for when the day comes!

      Neither did I! I new they didn’t last long but 2 days was a “wow I got lucky” moment. Are you going in the fall? Kyoto was amazing to see the leaves in the temple grounds but the leaves “peak” times vary throughout the region so you have some time to play with :] I’m excited for you Japan is a world of its own
