The 61st Korankei Momiji Festival
November 1 - 30, 2016

The viewing of autumn leaves at Kōrankei Gorge is said to have its origins some 380 years ago, when the first maples were planted by the 11th head priest of Kōjakuji Temple, San’ei. With around 4,000 individual trees, Kōrankei is known for having one of the best vistas of red and yellow autumn foliage in the Tōkai region, which is also lit up from sunset until 21:00. A variety of other attractions, including tea ceremonies, musical and monkey performances, are scheduled throughout November.
