November 2019: Koyo “The Colored Leaves” Box

Thank you for subscribing to Kizuna Box!

When this box arrives at your place, Japan will be covered with beautiful “Koyo” (Colored Leaves).
“Koyo” can be seen in most types of deciduous trees as many as they are deciduous trees.
Of course, the representative trees are “Momiji” (Maple). But “Ichou” (Ginkgo) or “Sakura” (Cherry tree) are also changed beautifully colored.
Since Tokyo’s symbol tree is “Ichou”, many “Ichou” trees are planted in Tokyo.
When those “Ichou” leaves turn yellow, it looks like a golden tree.
Of course, the “Koyo” of the “Sakura” is also beautiful.
“Sakura” leaves don’t change into a certain color. It changes to various colors such as red, yellow or orange.
It has a different beauty from spring.
Therefore, the famous place for “Sakura” in spring is also popular as a place for “Koyo” in autumn.

In Japan, there is the word “Momiji-Zensen” (maple front).
This is a front-line comparison of the appearance date of “Koyo” such as maple and ginkgo from north to south.
As the maple front moves southward, full-scale winter will comes to Japan.
