Autumn Colours in Japan (Kouyou)

hokkaido_autumnThe Japanese Autumn colour season, known in Japanese as kouyou (紅葉/こうよう) a a great time to visit Japan. Many temples, streets and parks across the country are filled with stunning red and golden leafed trees. While it can be a little difficult with the cherry blossom season to get the timings right, the Autumn colours season is much longer, so you have a much better of seeing something.

A great thing for budget travelers is that most of the best spots for Autumn colours are free!
