Interesting facts about autumn in Japan

Japan has four very distinct seasons and for many Autumn is the most beautiful as the foliage and forests turns vibrant red, orange and yellow in color.

Autumn is from mid-September until early December and is a time when many Japanese and tourists head outdoors for Momiji-gari (‘hunting red leaves’) which is basically leaf viewing. Another popular activity during this period is tsukimi (the Moon Viewing Festival) which has been taking place each Autumn for a thousand years. It involves eating rice dumplings, displaying decorations made from pampas grass and putting various types of food on display as an offering to the full moon.
