The fall season is now more or less at its peak. It started, as usual, on the mountains to the north of the city. The progression will then reach the hills surrounding Kyoto on the west and the east before spreading around the city, starting with the northern part.

This year, I started to look for these superb fall colors in the north, going to Takao to visit two wonderful temples, Jingo-Ji and Saimiyo-Ji. It was a bit early in the season at the time of this outing, but I still enjoyed the trip and the scenes.
