Autumn maple leaves that are famous nationwide
Korankei is known nationwide as a place to go and see autumn leaves. A "momiji matsuri", or "autumn leaves viewing festival", is held every year in November, which is the best time to see colored leaves on maple trees that are said to number around 4,000.
A variety of events, such as tea parties, festival music, Japanese drumming and other performances, are held during this period, particularly on Saturdays and Sundays. Also, there are illuminations every day from sunset until 9 p.m., so visitors can enjoy beautiful, fantastic scenery which is truly breathtaking.
Use the Direct Route Bus for easy access to Korankei!
A temporary, direct route bus will be taking guests to and from the main access points of Korankei and the courses include the utterly famous Shikizakura Four Seasons Cherry Blossoms of Obara and Senmi.
The first 500 passengers of the Korankei - Obara Route will be awarded a souvenir gift of Asuke Castle!
Make sure to use this service and make your Aichi experience all the more spectacular and memorable!
