Japan in the fall is all about those beautiful autumn leaves. Admiring autumn leaves in the mountains or in public parks is called “momijigari” in Japanese.
In Japan, visitors can enjoy the natural beauty of the four seasons. Of the four seasons, autumn has especially nice weather and is a season when one can taste many delicious foods, making it a great time for sightseeing.
The greatest appeal is the red and yellow autumn leaves of the broadleaf trees. Today we’ll be explaining a Japanese custom called “momijigari”, which literally means “autumn leaf hunting”. The word refers to the occasion when people walk around to admire the beautiful autumn leaves.
