Everybody’s favourite Autumn season is coming again this September to November! Japan is no doubt one of the front runners when it comes to choosing a destination pre-wedding photoshoot to capture the stunning Autumn foliage.

Here are the top 9 places to experience the overwhelming beauty of Fall in Japan during your pre-wedding photoshoot in Japan.

Oze National Park

Oze National Park is around 4 hours drive away from Tokyo and Autumn is the time when the expansive Ozegahara Marshland turns into a carpet of golden!

This is the most popular hiking trail and the majestic Mount Hiuchigatake and Mount Shibutsu provide a stunning backdrop too!

Nagatoro Valley

The Nagatoro Valley is such a gorgeous sight that tourists all over the world would take a day trip just to admire its Autumn brilliance.

The warm colours of fall at the sides of the valley provide the perfect contrast to the peaceful river that flows in between the valleys.

Shosei-en Garden, Kyoto

Shosei-en Garden is definitely the most picturesque public garden in Kyoto.

Located in the heart of the popular Gion District, it is a must-visit during Autumn! You will be awestruck by the thousands of vibrant colours that welcome you at every corner.

Here’s what one of our clients, Fiona, had to say about her Autumn experience:

“It was so unbelievably beautiful and we thought these views only exist in Google images and postcards. We are so thankful to be blessed with the stunning view”

Deer Park, Nara

The most visited park in the whole of Nara is definitely the Nara Deer Park. It is mesmerising across all seasons and even more so with the adorable free-roaming deer that make such wonderful companions.

Hozu River, Kyoto

This is quite a hidden gem as not many people explore the Hozu River by foot. It is more popular for its boat rides that bring you sightseeing around this scenic part of Kyoto. You will be amazed by how blue the waters are, which makes such an unbelievable backdrop when coupled with the different hues of red Autumn leaves!

Lake Chuzenji, Nikko

Not many tourists explore the sights around Nikko as there isn’t much to do besides sightseeing. However, this makes it an even greater place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and simply enjoy the beauty of Nature.
