Fall in Japan: Food, Festivals, and Foliage

The fall season is evident everywhere in Japan, so here I've picked three elements and three places to experience them.

FOOD - Tokyo

For the Japanese, food presentation is as important as quality and taste, and everything looks so incredibly good! Here are some tasty pictures from the food halls in the basement floors of Tokyo Department stores, where presentation is everything, and everything is presented in the seasonal theme: AUTUMN.



























FESTIVALS - Kurashiki

This festival just seemed to spring up out spontaneously out of nowhere, and the whole town poured out to participate.





































































FOLIAGE - Nikko

Where else but Nikko National Park to capture the colorful changing of leaves in Japan? I imagine this place is beautiful any time of year, but to catch the fall foliage was an incredible treat for my senses!
