Autumn in Japan: Aoni Onsen in AomoriNov 2020
If it was not for the promise of surrounding fall colors and an onsen only lit up with oil lamps, I would not find my way to the wonderful Aoni Onsen in Aomori and finally connect with the onsen experience. Aoni Onsen was like a scene from one of the novels of Tanazaki with its very traditional feel with each guest perfectly playing the part.
Autumn in Japan: Lake Towada and Oirase StreamOct 2020
Visiting Lake Towada has been on my list for some time as a fall outing but it was not until this year that I found the opportunity by timing it relatively right. Timing your trip for the peak fall colors is usually a difficult task.
Autumn in Japan: NikkoOct 2020
Even though we do not have to choose, I will get this out of the way right away. I would in any given year happily give up sakura season for an extended fall in Japan.
One Fine City // I spent ten days in Kanazawa in late November 2018, amazed with the fall colors and the classiness of the city. You can read my travel notes and tips here.
Yakushima // Photos from my three, luckily long, trips to Yakushima. One of the most rewarding nature destinations in Japan.
