Group tour "Golden Ring of Japan"

Loving the seasons and the ability to find their own charm in every season is an integral part of the culture and national character of the Japanese. One of the most favorite seasons of residents, recently become widely known and abroad, is the season of scarlet maple leaves. By the beauty of nature and the place occupied in the national culture, it is not inferior to the famous season of cherry blossom. As in the season of sakura, on the national sites there are maps showing details of the degree of readiness of maples in all regions of the country. Residents and tourists, armed with cameras, rush into gardens, parks, mountains and temples to capture the autumn landscapes in which the main character is scarlet maples. Their delicate crowns, woven from elegantly miniature leaves, seem to glow, permeated with sunlight, and it becomes clear why this season has taken such a solid place in the hearts of residents and guests of Japan. In different regions and at different altitudes, the peak occurs at various times. In Nikko (an area to the north of Tokyo, which is famous for its autumn mountain landscapes) is the period from mid-October to mid-November, and in Tokyo and Kyoto - from mid-November to the first third of December.
