Koyo 紅葉 Autumn colors

  When we say Koyo (紅葉, autumn leaves), it generally means the yellow leaves of ginkgo and the red ones of Japanese maple called Momiji もみじ.

 

  As the whole  

 

  We hope that this page will be a good reference for the next year's Koyo viewing.

  Koyo in Kamakura is ending by the continuous strong wind from the afternoon on the 10th, while it's still good at some places where leaf-coloring began late such as Shishimai Hiking Trail, Choshoji, Surroundings of Jufukuji, Jochiji, Myohonji, Zuisenji.

 

  Autumn colors of this year was a little confusing because of the irregular typhoon and unusual low temperature in October.

Dec. 11th, 2017

 

= Summary =

 

Nov. 27th - Dec. 5th: Good time, which was finally same as the past years.

  It can be said now the best time was until Dec. 3rd or 5th.

 

First half of November: Leaves that had began coloring in October withered, but still-green leaves at that time started to turn red and orange.

  It looked like the Act-I had ended and II opened.

 

October: Temperature was much lower for October and leaf-coloring began earlier than the past years at some places.

  But unusual big typhoon came twice and they brought the strong onshore wind that poured salty rain on the leaves.  Salt is said to be a bad influence on the autumn color. 

* Usually, leaf-coloring does not began in October at any place in Kamakura.
