Momiji: autumn leaves in Japan

Although spring seems to be the flagship season to travel in Japan, thanks to the sakura (cherry blossoms), Japanese fall also offers great charm. The climate stays mild rather late in the season, and starting October you can see the leaves coloring to orange and red.

The following pictures were shot last weekend in the Maulévrier Park, in western France. I have traveled in Japan during fall, but too early, unfortunately, to contemplate such leaves colors.

On the pictures below, you can see mostly Japanese maples (Acer palmatum), but also some cherry trees that wear a nice orange color during autumn.
