Kôyô, l'alter-ego du hanami en automne

La beauté des couleurs dont se parent les arbres à l'automne est éphémère, les Japonais en ont fait une fête de la contemplation du temps qui passe : le momijigari, la chasse au kôyô, les feuilles rougissantes. Une des plus belles saisons pour voyager au Japon et admirer ses beautés sous un éclairage rouge-orangé !

Where to admire kôyô in Japan?

In Kyoto - which is one of the privileged cities to enjoy kôyô - the easiest way to enjoy beautiful glowing panoramas is to visit the temples and gardens .

We particularly recommend Tofuku-ji and its hundreds of maples, Kiyomizu-dera and Kodai-ji for their sublime autumn illuminations . Do not miss to go to Arashiyama to enjoy the colorful hills for a stroll along the river.
