JAPAN - Leaf peeping in the land of the rising sun

25th October, 2020. 14 nights.

“We're fools whether we dance or not, so we may as well dance" Japanese proverb


We have been contemplating visiting this extraordinary country for some time now and after much deliberation, have made the decision to go, not to Hokkaido in Winter as so many photographers do, but to put together an autumn tour to celebrate Koyo (colourful leaves) which we feel will provide a much more immersive cultural experience.

When autumn deepens, Japan is draped in a symphony of red and yellow hues from the fields and mountains to the cities. A transformation thought by many to be one of the most beautiful in the world.

Known as momijigari, the Japanese venture out to appreciate the glory of this natural phenomenon. It is a custom that dates back to the 8th century.

The excitement of the arrival of autumn colour runs deep in Japanese culture. Join us to experience it for yourself.
