Kyoto in Autumn

It was interesting to discover that the tourist office would not really tell us the best places to view autumn leaves as they say too many people go there! Still, armed with our indispensable guidebooks we managed to see the key places for magnificent autumn foliage. We also managed to pick times of the day that the crowds were bearable but it was the buses that were unpleasantly cramped at times.

Thx Tuti. I hope it gives you some ideas for travel whilst you are staying in Japan. Particularly seasonal changes are dramatic with whole gardens/parks planted with a season in mind - very beautiful although sometimes a bit too crowded! Keep in touch. Tania.
