So much takes place in Kyoto in autumn, but the autumn leaves season is the best part of this time of year here in the old capital! Everything turns red, even the sky starts to turn into shades of vermillion and the stately sight of Kyoto’s temples and the red leaves welcomes you to Japan. Because the timing of autumn leaves changes every year based on the weather, I recommend checking this article as often as possible to get the latest autumn news from Kyoto!
