December foliage

November and December is a colourful time in Japan.  This time is known as “koyo.”  The leaves are changing colour, yellow, orange, and red.  The gingko trees are a brilliant yellow.  The maples trees are a mix of red and orange.  The cherry trees are also red, but most of the leaves are gone now.

This morning, I was able to take some pictures of the trees.  So, please enjoy!


These trees are related to the gingko, and are also bright yellow. Many of the leaves have fallen off.


Engyou Park in Shonandai has some beautiful red maple trees.
