I didn’t know what I wanted to do today, so randomly I picked a station on the JR line. That’s how I went to Joukouji today. I spent only a short time there, but the colors and textures were beautiful. As you can see, the leaves are only just starting to change colors. The full 紅葉 (kouyou, or autumn leaf colors) don’t start happening until mid-November, apparently. Also, there’s a temple there that I didn’t make it to, because it was getting kind of late.
