Autumn at Maruyama Park

Scarlet maple leaves around the pond

By Cathy Cawood    - 1 min read

Maruyama Park is probably best known for cherry blossoms, but it is also a good place to enjoy autumn leaves. There are many red maple trees, especially around the pond, which reflects their color and delicate shape beautifully. The evergreen trees form a contrasting background while the gray stone bridge and rocks in the pond act as calm accents to the vibrant scarlet.

 I came to Japan in 2003 to teach English. I lived in Shiga prefecture for 1 year, and it still holds a special place in my heart. I lived in Kyoto for 9 years, then moved to Machida, Tokyo in 2014 after meeting my Japanese partner. I love to take photos, and my Japan in Pictures Facebook page has some 40,000 followers. I have been the Regional Partner for Yamanashi Prefecture since 2014.I am enjoying exploring the prefectures around Tokyo (I like to get off the beaten track), and I hope the photos and stories I share will encourage more people to discover this wonderful country.
