The Fall and Autumn Colours

 
 

The Picture below is of the climber, Poison Ivy (Toxicodendron radicans), some of the first leaves to change during the onset of the Japanese Fall Season and take on beautiful Autumn colours with Takatsumayama (Mount Takatsuma – 2351 m) in the background.

Autumn is already upon us here in the mountainous regions of Japan. And what better time for capturing some beautiful shots of the colourful Autumn leaves. This is a great time to be in Japan to view such beauty in nature. Japanese Maples are especially pleasing to see and are in abundance as one would expect with a name like that!

Here we have the Takatsuma Lodge named after the beautiful pyramid peak in the opening picture (Mount Takatsuma) with adorable Maple tree going through the Summer to Autumn Colours transition in Togkakushi, Nagano Prefecture in Japan.

Japan is quite famous for its Fall Colours which exude exoticism and draw domestic and International visitors alike to places where the transformation of summer foliage to Autumnal is at its most exuberant. The viewing of colourful fall leaves is known as momijigari or koyo , and is a favourite pastime for the Japanese populace.

    You certainly have a little more sunshine in your Autumn pictures than we do at the moment.

    I've managed to peek at your website – it's beautiful.
