The highlights of autumn in Japan are undoubtably the Ginkgo leaf which turns a brilliant yellow, and the Japanese Maple leaf, which turns a rich red. Everyone has their preference. I tend to prefer the Japanese maple. But when you combine the two of them… Well, it’s hard to compete with that.
This part of the Oto River is lined with these steps. They make for a good place to rest and enjoy the weather on nice days. Here, late in the autumn, the leaves were enjoying resting on them.
