Kouyo is autumn leaves, turned yellow and red.
Beautiful Kouyo forests is great healing places for us in Japan.
One day excursion from Tokyo, to not so hight mountain,
we can see forest turned yellow in the middle of December.
5 or 6 hours walk should be good exercise for you.
I love autumn mountains. Walking alone in the forest, I can feel the air and hear the sound
of wild life. We don’t see many people there and mountains talk to me in their language.
Leaves have different color and day by day they change.
For climbers, seeing Kouyo and climb rocky mountains in Japan Alps is available.
Minimum 3 days trip from Tokyo.
