3 Simple Reasons Why You Need To Visit Japan This Fall

I know you’re not supposed to pick favourites but since I have been in love with Japan since I can remember I am now committed for life. Japan will always have that special place in my heart as it’s the first place that really captured my attention as a kid. I mean Japan is simply amazing. And when you travel to Japan the most beautiful times to visit to this magical country is in the spring for cherry blossoms season, or the fall for their beautiful leaves. Personally I think everyday is a good day to travel to Japan but let me convince you why you need to travel to japan this fall!


When I first travelled to Japan was with my Aunt while I was living abroad in Australia. We hopped on Cairns first ever flight to Osaka where we were greeted at the gate by a media frenzy and some green tea Kit-Kats! It was a pretty surreal welcome. What made that trip more amazing was that we were just in time for the Cherry Blossom Season. For more about that journey click here!


The second time I went to Japan was with Aaron sometime in November. I had talked Japan up sooooooo much like a kid talks about his new puppy. And I’m happy to say it lived up to all his expectations! We fell madly in love with Japan. So much so that I didn’t think we would come home!


The Leaves Changing

If you don’t know about Japans beautiful fall colours then you do now! People travel from all across the world to view the stunning leaf colours. My favourite place to view the leafs in in Kyoto in one of the temple grounds. Japan is simply stunning this time of year and should definitely be on your bucket list!


The Weathers Perfect

Who doesn’t love bundling up in a few cozy layers smelling the crisp fall air? Japan during the fall season is forgivable for both heat lovers and cold lovers. During fall you will find both “warmer” weather and cooler weather depending which region you are travelling too. It’s perfect for travelling and viewing the leafs because on foggy days the leafs colours are even more vibrant! Just make sure you pack and umbrella for a little rain showers.

It’s Quieter This Time Of Year

While it’s busy in Japan because of the leaves this time of year it’s also quieter once you escape the leave viewing crowds. Dive in deeper to Japans Kansai region and take the train to Mount Koya or to one of Japan’s other amazing hidden gems. You’ll find accommodation cheaper but just make sure you book a few months ahead of time just to be safe!
