It is the best time to savor delicious food and recharge for the year. Why not stroll around colorful Hiyama, where pleasant spring breezes blow?

Autumn - a time when temperatures in the morning and evening begin to lower and trees start to turn color. There are more chances for traveling in this season thanks to the Silver Week holidays and three-day weekends. Hiyama, where leaves change color and deepen their tone gradually, is the ultimate destination for enjoying not only the autumn harvest but also the arts. (There is an expression in Japanese that literally means “autumn is for the arts” [i.e., geijutsu no aki]. This refers to the belief that autumn, a time of pleasant weather, is the best time of year to enjoy the arts. Autumn is also the season in which art exhibitions are held.) Many other new discoveries await you in this atmospheric streetscape.

Two courses for amazing winter experiences are suggested.
