Autumn in Japan is my favorite season. Experiencing the change of colors in the leaves, under a beautiful sky and a nice temperature, there is nothing better.
Chance discoveries are often the most amazing. It was on the road to Nippara limestone caves that I found this village of little interest yet total surprise.
Frantically I put my foot down, driving along the incredible Route 106 (the last stretch of road to the north of Hokkaido) through a storm where the sky and the ocean are as one.
One day, or maybe one night, near a cemetery, I fell asleep ...
Let's go discover this very special haikyo with a man who is equally special, or maybe not.
Where are these pretty women? In the forest of Bijin Bayashi! And they’re everywhere! Above, below, and all around you.
Here’s a burst of colour for starters: Ritsurin in Takamatsu, one of the most beautiful gardens in the country.
Goshikinuma is a hidden corner at the foot of the mountain in Fukushima prefecture, with five differently coloured volcanic lakes.
It’s still early and I leave Tokyo before sunrise. I take the long tunnel and the Aqua-Line bridge to the other side of Tokyo Bay, then follow a small mountain road that loses me somewhere in the heart of Chiba...
Nara is very pretty with plenty of hidden corners to visit that I’ll try to help you discover. One of my autumn favourites is Hannya-ji Temple.
On l'appelle le Château dans le Ciel ou encore le Machu Picchu du Japon. Rien que ça ;)
According to a Japanese philosopher, Amanohashidate is one of the three most famous views of Japan along with Matsushima and Miyajima.
I am not always fair with Ibaraki Prefecture. I always say that there is not much to it besides the occasional haikyo, but it actually does have its charms.
How can you spend so much time in Japan without ever touching ground in the Ryukyu archipelago? You can’t! This first part is set on the main Okinawa island.
After visiting the wonderful Yumi-ike Pond, it’s time to go to the Mount Shirane.
Mostly know for his ski resorts, Hakuba's village is also a very nice place to be in the end of autumn. That's where took place 1998's Winter Olympic Games.
In Nikko, when going beyond Lake Chūzenji and beautiful Ryūzu Waterfall, there is another splendid place to discover : the Senjōgahara Marshland (戦場ヶ原).
From this point, we can choose to visit the Yumiike pond or go up directly to Mount Shirane summit.
Sakurayama is a unique place in Japan : this is a mountain where koyo (autumn’s leaves) and sakura (cherry blossom) gather in an original union.
Sakurayama is a mountain with sakura (cherry blossom) quite peculiar. Those ones bloom during autumn!
It's early morning in Okinawa and the sky is already ocean blue. Without any hesitation, we jump right away in the first boat direction the paradise: the Taketomi Island!
