Autumn In the City

It's actually winter here already (it feels like it). And it's been weeks since the declared best days for foliage viewing. But since I've been quite busy attending to some office duties the past weeks, it's just lately that I had time to roam the city.


Good thing I still got a glimpse of the koyo or autumn leaves that colored metro Tokyo. Armed with my trusty point-and-shoot, I walked about 5 miles from Tokyo Central Station to various tree-lined roads sorrounding the Imperial Palace and Hibiya Park. I felt disappointed that much of the leaves have actually fallen and dried, but it was good to note that the persistent ones still gave the cold urban backdrop a romantic feel. In the end I was still glad that I now have in my photo collection pictures of autumn in the rural and urban sides of Japan.

Great pictures. I was just in Nikko on Sunday and the koyo is still beautiful up there.

one of the things i like in japan is the presence of trees in urban areas. and in autumn, i love the way they add color to the city life. :)
