Mt. Fuji Autumn Leaves Photography Tours combine two of the most photogenic elements Japan has to offer, its iconic UNESCO peak and the annual transformation of all the maple trees in the Mt. Fuji area into a quilt of reds, oranges, and gold.  There are always a few green leave hold outs that refuse to acknowledge the changing seasons from summer to autumn, but that variation in color only enhances the other rich colors that the Mt. Fuji Autumn Leaves Photography Tour has to offer.

 

Kawaguchiko, one of the Fuji Five Lakes holds a festival every year starting on the first day of autumn and lasting for a little more than three weeks.  Your Japan Dreamscapes Photography Tour Leader is constantly checking the conditions of the 紅葉 (kōyō) or changing leaves colors so you will have photo ops for the most spectacular parts of the Kawaguchiko perimeter with Fujisan filling the background over every breathtaking autumn photo that you take.  The festival is centered on Kawaguchiko’s northern shore, and that provides the most remarkable shutter chances for any visiting photographer.  Your JDS Photo Workshop Guide will help you get to precisely the correct location to take once in a lifetime photos.

 

The Maple Corridor is most awe-inspiring when all the maple leaves have taken on their autumn colors.  Two kilometers of shimmering leaves great you as you stroll the corridor.  It is exactly this type of scene that inspired some of Japan’s most famous artists, such as Katsushika Hokusai to create ‘Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji’.  You will feel equally motivated to create your own gallery with all the amazing photos that you will take on your Autumn Leaves Photography Workshop.
