AUTUMN LEAVES IN KYOTO 1/2.

The autumn leaf chasing tours in this year became the final stage for us.  We went to Kyoto and Nara to enjoy  autumn leaf landscapes.

      今年の紅葉追跡の旅行は最終段階に入りました。最後は京都と奈良です。

                                            We went to Tofukuji temple in Kyoto at first.

We enjoyed autumn leaves very much.

  3. These are all so beautiful, I wish I could step into them and go exploring! Autumn is so lovely where you live, it reminds me quite a bit of New England in the Fall.

    I especially love the last two photos from Kyoto, all of the photos from Kyomoji (the one of the two maple leaves against the grass is so sweet and pretty!), and that last one of that turquoise-colored river! You sure know how to find and photograph all the loveliest places, Minoru!

  10. こんにちは、関東地方の紅葉は10月の異常気象のせいか、色付きがイマイチでしたが、京都はいかがでしたか。写真で拝見すると東福寺よりも光明寺のが赤が鮮やかに見えますが、きのせいでしょうか。特に6枚目・7枚目の写真が綺麗ですね。トロッコ列車は私も何年か前に乗りましたが、11月23日で、メチャメチャ混雑したという記憶があります。

       こんばんは。紅葉の色はどちらも違いは無かった様に思います。私は混雑が苦手で、京都は意識的に盛りを過ぎたころに行く事にしています。
       最後の散り際のあでやかさを見る事が出来ました。 トロッコ列車も「立ち席あり」という案内が出ていました。

  17. How beautiful, you have there more red lives than we have here or in Spain. We have maple trees but not so much that we had that kind of gorgeous red landscape.
    Thank you for stopping by and I'm glad if you knows Sibelius and his beautiful music:)

  24. This Part 1 is just as gorgeous as your Part 2 in different ways. Japan is so lovely to visit during Autumn. I guess I should visit Fukuoka in Autumn 2014.
