THE BEAUTY IN FALL

Endings, though we see it as something sad can actually be very beautiful. Although it means departure, it could also mean coming back into something greater than before. Like autumn, the changing and falling of leaves means surrender by letting nature take its course and yet it is the most wonderful thing to see.

This year’s peak of the autumn season, Hakone in Kanagawa Prefecture has everything we’ve all been looking for a perfect autumn experience. To begin with, Hakone has always been noted as a must-visit place in Japan all year around – and the season of fall is no exception.

The Hakone Open Air Museum’s Park will sure make your visit quite special. You can enjoy the vibrant color leaves inside a Japanese style garden. This place is surrounded with intricately designed landscapes and ryokans (a Japanese old-style house) that will make you wish to stay there forever.

Last but not the least, there are open tea houses if ever you’re searching for a place to warm down and relax in between strolls.

Anyone who has been around Hakone would tell you that the Hakone Tozan Train, a mountain railway is something you should include in your itinerary. Going up and down the hill from Hakone Open Air Museum to Hakone’s Tozan cable car, this iconic train will show you Hakone’s rich and diverse land forms. Its large windows will also give you the most vivid color autumn trees in the background as it climbs up the slopes.

There are more worth mentioning view spots around Hakone too that I can assure you will be definitely worth your trip here. If you want to see these spots, please check my previous blog stories and other Hakone adventures in Lake Ashinoko’s Cruise, The Komatage Ropeway, inside the Open Air Museum and of course my last year’s autumn in Mt. Fuji’s Lake Kawaguchi and Yamanaka 🙂 .

Overall, this season is always much anticipated in Japan and anywhere else in the world. Everyone believes that it brings color and proof that there is indeed beauty in fall. How about you? How’s your fall experience?
