An Alternative To Cherry Blossom Time.


Img2_0172Japan in cherry blossom time is undoubtedly very beautiful. It is also very crowded and you can never be sure of the exact right time to go. A quieter and equally beautiful alternative is to visit Japan in the autumn. The leaves seem to radiate a light of their own. It is a magic season, full of colour and spectacle.
