It is lit up at night in various places during the autumn leaves season.
I will introduce you to some of the best spots for autumn leaves in Kyoto that you can enjoy until this weekend.
Kyoto Botanical Garden started to light up autumn leaves at night in 2019.
For the 2nd year in 2020, the "Illumination of the world's autumn leaves" will be held until Sunday, November 29.
The park is usually open until 17 o'clock but has been extended to 20 o'clock (The last entrance is at 19:30.).
When it gets dark, the light up points such as Irohamomiji, Yamazakura and Ginkgo will light up.
Trees such as cherry maple trees and metasequoia trees native to overseas are also illuminated, creating a fantastic atmosphere.
About 200 Japanese maple trees which reflect on the pond water surface surrounding the "Nagagi no Mori" is also wonderful.
Around the pond you can see cherry blossoms that bloom in the fall, and the collaboration with the autumn leaves is a feature of this season's botanical garden.
The park is large, so it's nice that you can take your time and look around without getting too crowded.
Also, don't miss the free night opening of "viewing greenhouse" during the period!
The humidity in the greenhouse is set high, and the night greenhouse surrounded by greenery has a jungle atmosphere.
From the entrance to the exit, the feeling of jumping into a different world continues.
Why don't we go out in the dark and love the plants that are lit up?
