Preparing for Momiji
Every year around the beginning of autumn, just before the leaves begin changing their colors, you begin to hear the word, momiji, batted about in conversation. Momiji itself means Japanese maple. But in conversation when someone uses momiji suru or momiji miru they mean viewing Japanese maple and other autumn tree leaf colors.
Right now is that time!
As temperatures begin to fall, people are beginning to talk about momiji viewing. It will continue to be the hot topic here in Japan until the last autumn leaves have fallen.
What most people want to know is “Where and when to go?”
Many people go to parks, shrines and temples, while others go to the countryside. Momiji viewing is done individually, as a date with someone you love or as a group. Most people in Japan from now on will be talking about momiji.
Momiji will be the hot topic on this site until sometime in December, just before Christmas. So keep your eyes and ears open. You will find many great places to go momiji viewing, too.
