The Fall Harvest in Japan

When the weather starts getting chilly in Japan, two things are on people’s minds: kouyou and cozy comfort food. Kouyou or “fall colors” are as popular as spring’s cherry blossoms. Every year an Autumn Foliage forecast is released so people know when to expect the most vibrant leaves in their area. Many head out for picnics under the stunning leaves, bringing seasonal dishes with them.
