Autumn in Japan

Hello there! How have you been? It’s been a while since I have posted my last blog. I had been busy for a while and, when I realize that, it’s the season that we can see leaves changing.

Last week, my husband and I went hiking the closest hill called Pon Pon Yama. It was the best timing for us to enjoy the autumn view. Since I took some photos, I want to show them to you. I hope you enjoy Japanese autumn views.

In the hill we have a Shito-shrine, and it’s popular among people who live in the area.

This statue is a guardian for a Shito-shrine called Komainu.

I think this is a monk’s house of the Shito-shrine.

This statue is called Jizo and God for children. He is my favorite God because his face looks always peaceful.

I am very proud of these Japanese maple leaves. I love their red. This is the Japanese autumn.

I found six cute zizou.

We enjoyed the views, the clean air, and walking. I realized that hiking is so much fun, and good for exercise. I want to do this more often from now on with my hubby.

It’s getting colder here. I think in some places it’s getting hotter. Stay warm or cool and don’t get sick.

See you around in two weeks again here!

      Hi, Helga!

      How are you doing? I guess Thailand is warm in this season ( not too humid and hot), and I hope you are feeling comfy. I am sure you have beautiful fall in Switzerland! I want to see it some time!

    Hi Yumi,
    Once again, thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures. I think it’s very interesting to be able to see that the trees there in Japan are very similar to the trees here in MI. We, too, get a variety of colors from red to orange to yellow. All very beautiful and a joy to see. There are more similarities in our cultures/countries than differences and these pictures are one way of showing us those similarities.

      Hi, Emilie

      Thank you for the comment. Thank you for sharing Michigan fall too! It’s fascinating to read what you wrote. I visited Gay before Halloween once, and I still remember the autumn colors in Michigan. I agree that our colors are very similar, and I loved them as well!

    Hi Yumi, I enjoyed your photos and article. As Emilie said we have similar colors here. This year it has been so warm our colors are not so brilliant. My redwood tree changes to a bright orange in the fall. This year it is a dirty brown green. My white hibiscus useually turns an orange pink in the fall but just turned brown. Kind of disappointed in that. It is still warm here and we should be looking for snow. Really strange. Love ya.

      Hi, Gay

      Thank you for the comment. It sounds very interesting, and I didn’t know leaves or flowers colors are so affected by the weather. Here, it’s getting colder, and I am enjoying knitting. I can’t believe that we have only one month left! Time flies so fast.

      I prefer the warmer weather, and I hope you won’t have many snow there. Stay warm!
