Fall Colours to Fall in Love With – Japan

The only reason we postponed our trip to Japan from October to November, was because we wanted to witness the vibrant fall colours. Both my husband, Daniel and I hail from western India and spotting autumn colours here is as common as finding a penguin in the Sahara desert. So no matter what, we wanted to experience autumn in all its glory even if it meant enduring the biting cold weather. And boy was it worth it! The beauty of the shrines, the spotless streets and alleys and the rivers and lakes increased ten-fold! Therefore, now, I proudly present to you the unforgettable red and yellow hues of ‘Japan in November’.

Walking down the Philosopher’s Path in Kyoto, were these little autumn decorations.
