Autumn in Japan
It is already Autumn in Japan, the time of the year many Japanese people claim is their favorite. Why is Autumn so popular? After the draining heat of summer, the cooler weather is welcomed by everyone and it is time to head outside and watch the leaves change color. Beautiful Autumn scenery can be seen all over the country. But the most exciting part? The seasonal food is considered to be the best – mushrooms, persimmons, chestnuts and bamboo shoots are but a few treats that are at their best when the leaves change.
