Autumn in Japan is a truly spectacular sight to see areas surrounding Tokyo or other parts of Japan.  Shades of red, vermilion and gold light up forested hillsides, shrine and temple grounds, public gardens and city avenues all over the country. Though bright-red Japanese maples are most recognizable, many other showy trees burst into colour, like the deep golden ginkgo and burnt-orange zelkova trees.  Kōyō, the turning of the leaves,  sets wild hillsides aflame with variegated hues of scarlet while city streets are enlivened by pops of shocking orange.

The koyo season is the Autumn equivalent of the hanami season in Spring.  People make their way to see the beautiful rich colors of the red maple and more as they turn the city streets and countryside into a vibrant carpet of reds, golds, and oranges.
