The Top 6 Recommended Autumn Colors Spots of 2016 : Hiroshima Prefecture

When Is The Best Time To See The Autumn Colors??

It’s time to go out and see the autumn colors, so I’m going to introduce 6 great places in the Bingo area (Kasaoka – Mihara City) worth visiting.

Mihara City’s Two Highly Recommended Spots

The first one is Sankei-en, a wonderfully elegant garden that really captures the essence of Hiroshima Prefecture. To see its vibrant autumn colors, the best time to come is from the beginning of November. An autumn colors festival is held from November 5th to the 20th.

Entrance fee: Adults 310 yen, junior high school children and younger 160 yen.

The second place in Mihara, Buttsu-ji temple, is known as the most prominent Zen-Buddhism dojo in Japan. A lot of visitors come during the fall to see the autumn colors. As it’s actually easier to see it from outside the grounds than inside, there is enough space for everyone who wants to come. The peak time is mid-November.

Shobara City’s Recommended Spot

The most recommended place to see the autumn colors in Shobara City is the Taishaku Valley. It’s also one of the top 100 greatest scenic spots in Japan. The best time to see the autumn colors is at the beginning of November. You can enjoy the scenery from Onbashi bridge, or from anywhere else along this long valley.

Fuchu City’s Recommended Spot


The recommended spot in Fuchu City is a popular triple-waterfall called Saburo-no-Taki. In the fall, the area is painted in vibrant autumn hues, and as the leaves wither and fall the water and ground get covered in a colorful blanket of leaves.

Shimanami’s Recommended Spot

The recommended spot along the Shimanami Kaido expressway is Kousan-ji temple on Ikuchi Island. The best time to see the autumn colors here is from mid-November to the beginning of December. An autumn colors festival is being held from November 19th to December 4th. The deep red blanket of autumn colors covering the temple makes it even more charming than usual.

Shinshozen-ji temple is the recommended spot to see autumn colors in Fukuyama City.
