Don't know where to go to see the autumn foliage in Japan? Let us help you find a spot to go this year by introducing the top 10 in Japan, provided by Japan Travel and Tourism Association.

Why do Japanese people enjoy the foliage?

In Japan, there are seasonal forecasts for cherry blossoms and autumn foliage.
Japanese people seem to have a different perception when it comes to the changes in seasons and they have incorporated that into their living.

As we have listed out previously, there are plenty of places to go and food to try this autumn.
We have recently put together a list of places to go to in Tokyo to see the foliage as well.
