Autumn Illumination in Hida Takayama

It's getting cold as days go by.
The season for autumn leaves will started at the beginning of October.
This year, we had extremely hot summer. But it will be largely unaffected
Changes in temperature and light affect the color of leaves.

Takayama has many good spots for viewing autumn leaves, such as Nakabashi-bridge, Kokubunji-temple, Higashiyama walking course and Enako river.
Some of these spots will be illuminated from beginning-October to early November to allow evening viewing of the trees.
For example, the Nakabashi Bridge is illuminated soon after dark to create a fantastic view of the surrounding area.

Place: Nakabashi Bridge and nearby area 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm
    Along the Enako river
