[Cancelled] Toyota City Inabu Maple Festival
Early Nov., Mid-Nov.
The Oidaira Park is a widely known “koyo” autumn leaves spot of the district of Inabu, eastern Toyota-City. About 520 trees of Acer, Maple and Maiden’s Hair (Gingko biloba, or “icho” in Japanese) all start to get vividly colored a bit earlier than the even more famous Korankei valley, making for a good option for those in a hurry to see the beautiful autumnal hues of Aichi’s nature.
The waters of the Naguragawa River are a nice complement reflecting those hues on its surface, enlarging its grandness. November sees the Toyota City Inabu Maple Festival during which visitors are able to taste the superb local cuisine while appreciating the marvelous sights.
