Nikko autumn coast

posted on October 30, 2016

Maple, mountain ash and other trees are awash in autumn colors Monday on Haccho Dejima, a small peninsula that juts into Lake Chuzenji in Nikko, Tochigi Prefecture.

The leaves are expected to gradually turn color lower down along Irohazaka slope, which straddles the lake and the urban district of Nikko. Early November will be the peak time for viewing the autumn leaves around Nikko Toshogu shrine.
