Mt. Mifune Autumn Light-up

Scenic wonders since 1845

Mt. Mifune’s 210 m rocky face looks over a pond on the edge of Takeo City, a perfect place for a garden. The park dates from 1845, and each November, the vast area is lit up at dusk as the maples change from green into yellows and reds. One giant maple is as old as the park itself.

The gardens are also especially popular during the spring for the azaleas and cherry blossoms. Here’s a glimpse of the autumn colors.

Headed here in about three weeks time - can't wait! It looks gorgeous and I'm sure it's even more incredible in person.

Oh, I might be a bit early for the lights but I'm going to enjoy the park and the scenery nonetheless! :)
