Fujikawaguchiko Autumn Leaves Festival

Dec 8, 2016

In Japan, autumn leaves represent the coming of fall.

If you want to celebrate this beautiful occasion, I recommend you join the Fujikawaguchiko Autumn Leaves Festival.

It’s held every year during the first three weeks of November. You can’t miss it! The festival is held where large maple trees line both sides of a river. When the leaves start to turn, they form an ‘autumn leaves tunnel’ – a breathtaking column of red and yellow hues.

Many from all across Japan and the world visit Lake Kawaguchi just to witness this amazing sight.

It is during this time that the city comes alive. Many locals open small stores along the river to sell savory salt-grilled river fish, hot drinks and handmade crafts. It’s a good time to try the local delicacies and buy some unique Lake Kawaguchi souvenirs!

So, if you’re thinking about visiting Japan, why not do it during the Fujikawaguchiko Autumn Leaves Festival? I’m sure you’ll have an unforgettable experience!

山の麓、高原の町の秋は駆け足でやってきます。

そんな富士山麓の「紅葉」を楽しむための催しが「富士河口湖紅葉(もみじ)まつり」(Fujikawaguchiko Autumn Leaves Festival)。毎年11月の始めから3週間の開催されます。

川沿いに並ぶ大きなカエデの木々や、通称「紅葉トンネル」と呼ばれる並木が見事な赤や黄色のグラデーションに染まる様子は、まさに絶景。この時期ならではの眺めを一目見ようと、日本や世界の各地から多くの人が訪れます。

また、期間中には地元富士河口湖町の観光協会や商店主の人々が中心に、川魚の塩焼きや温かい飲み物、工芸品がならぶ屋台を出しています。

所狭しとならんだテントを覗きながら、河口湖ならではのグルメやお土産を見つけるのもまた楽しみの一つです。
