There are 2 months left of the year 2015. How are all of you doing?
It is already November, becoming a season of the “Momiji-Gari” (leaf peeping) in Japan.
“Momiji-Gari” is a Japanese peculiar custom. It is the custom that “Dare to go for an outing to watch a colored leaves”.
I will introduce you the number of spots watched in Tokyo in two parts.
The end of November is in full bloom. About 1,000 of trees including Japanese maple and the ginkgo(“Ichou”) colors vividly everywhere in the garden. The garden lighted up at night is very fantastic!
