In November, we have “Momiji matsuri” which is Autumn leaves festival in Kawaguchiko.
What is momiji matsuri – Autumn leaves festival?
We have four seasons in Japan, and they have the characteristic every season clearly.
In Autumn, maple-leaves turn beautiful red and yellow.
In Kawaguchiko, you can enjoy the beautiful autumn-leaves at momiji matsuri.
There is a maple corridor in Kawaguchiko, and they are illuminated at night.
At momiji matsuri in Kawaguchiko, not only you can see beautiful autumn-leaves,
but also you can take pictures of Mt.Fuji and maple-leaves.
There are some small shops there, and sometimes you can watch
“Sarumawashi” which is Japanese style monkey show.
The price of momiji matsuri is free (it costs for parking).
I recommend you to go there on weekdays as possible, because it’s very crowded on weekend.

To go to momiji matsuri, you can take the Retro Bus from Kawaguchiko Station
