Autumn Colors in Japan – 2011 (Part 2)
Autumn seems to be over now. Actually we had our first snow today (初雪: hatsuyuki = first snow).
I want to use this opportunity to say goodbye to my favorite season in Japan!
The photos you’ll see were taken last week, just around my apartment.
Please enjoy the beautiful autumn colors in Japan with me!
It’s quite obvious that autumn was about to end, right?
I can’t believe that this was only one week ago! Now almost all the leaves have fallen down!
Leaves gather around their flower queen!
But it’s true that there were more leaves under the trees than on them already!
I like the color mix!
Shortly before the peak is over, it’s usually the most beautiful time as you get so many color variations everywhere!
Welcome to my inaka (aka very small city)!
Yes, it is peaceful and quiet … most of the time.
Beautiful autumn colors behind a convenience store.
The autumn colors in Japan were not as wonderful in 2011 as normally.
Autumn is a great time to visit Japan as the climate is very mild and usually it won’t rain very often.
Look! The cars are kissing!?! XD
Gotta love those stone lanterns!
Love is in the air! *sing*
Have you figured it out yet? No???!!!
ZOOM: Can you see the culprit? XD
This is definitely one of my favorite autumn photos this year!
Autumn colors in Japanese gardens are a sight you can’t miss!
I think I already mentioned this in my last “autumn colors” entry, but what I like the most is a combination of green, red and yellow like here!
And now I think it’s really time to say goodbye to autumn – at least for this year
They say that it’s gonna be an extremely cold winter in Japan this year!
What is your favorite season? Mine is definitely NOT winter!!
Thanks for reading!~
