Japan is a magical land of four distinct seasons. During the Fall or Autumn Season the entire country turns into brilliant shades of yellows, oranges and reds. 

Almost everyone has heard of the maginificent Japanese Cherry Blossoms, but few realise Japan’s Autumn Leaves are just as beautiful. From Kyushu in the south to Hokkaido in the north, the vibrant leaves of Autumn will leave you captivated. Autumn in Japan is a special time as it signifies the end of summer and the beginning of winter. As such, the seasonal cuisine and natural beauty takes centre stage. 

We invite you to experience the wonder of Japan’s Autumn Leaves and share in this magical time of year on our private and exclusive tours. Each of our tours are meticulously designed to showcase this magnificent season.

We look forward to welcoming you on tour and sharing this once in a lifetime experience with you.
