紅葉 (Autumn leaves in Hamamatsu)

First, I’ll apologise for this being a lazy blog. What I mean by “lazy” is that it’s going to be more pictures than words.  There are two reasons for that…

(1) I have been writing a novel this month (see NaNoWriMo) and don’t want to run out of words before the deadline.

(2) I think 紅葉 (kouyou), or ‘coloured autumn leaves’ are better seen than written about.

So, as I said, I’ve been sat inside writing a lot this month, but I was starting to fret that I wouldn’t get the chance to see any of Japan’s gorgeous autumn leaves this year. I couldn’t afford (in time or money) to go to some top spot like Kyoto so, today, I took myself to Hamamatsu Castle Park, and I was quite pleased with what I found there!

The full collection can be found on Flickr. Enjoy! 😉

  1. Beautiful pictures! I’ve been trapped inside the house due to application deadlines, headaches and bad weather, but I’m hoping to treat myself to some fall leaves in a couple of days.
