Fall is just around the corner and that means Matsumoto will soon be ablaze in the autumn colors! There are tons of great spots around the city and in the mountains like the golden larches in Kamikochi and the trees around Matsumoto Castle.
Visit Matsumoto’s “Fall Leaves – Colors Watch” page will help you not only find all the best spots to see the leaves but also when the best time to see them is (“Best Time to See” is based on the yearly average dates). See a spot that interests you? Click on it to get more details on how to get there.
Because the spots are located at varying elevations, the leaves change colors at differing rates and peak at different times, and of course, there are yearly differences due to weather. To help you plan accordingly, the Colors Watch page will also be updated with the leaves’ current color condition throughout the season.
Go check out the Colors Watch page now and start planning your fall outings in Matsumoto!
