Autumn at Oiso Joyama Park

Brilliant fall colors lit against the darkness of night

In the autumn, Oiso Joyama Park lights up the fall colors of the Japanese maples using spotlights, and lines the park's walkways with candles to guide visitors through a magnificently peaceful and breathtaking garden. During the lighting festival, visitors can get a glimpse into traditional Japan through a rotation of performances including the shamisen and taiko, as well as foods like roasted yam and tonjiru soup.
