oh i must keep with the clichés! of so many beautiful things in japan, the autumn colours of the leaves are on the top. the first time i indulged myself in this beauty was a one day only trip in december in kyoto. a crazy shinkasen ride from tokyo and an overflood of temples and gardens. i returned tokyo happy as ever for having been so blesses. through out the year every season brings new beauty and new colours. december brings yellow and red.
