Enjoy the autumn foliage in a small marshland.
This small marshland, Kakumanbuchi is located at Mt. Akagi (elev. 1360-meters) in Gunma Prefecture. The best time to see autumn foliage has arrived. Kakumanbuchi is a small marsh about 1-kilometer in circumference and its promenade is fully furbished, so you can enjoy a 30-minute hike. The best season for autumn foliage is the middle of October because the marsh is located at such a high elevation. “Oze” is a very large and famous marshland Japan and Kakumanbuchi is sometimes referred to as, “little Oze”.
The gradation of yellow colored grass is beautiful.
Red autumn foliage cannot be seen here, but the other popular fall color, yellow, is very abundant in this area. The golden yellow carpet od grass here is called, “Kusa-koyo”.
Let’s take a walk on the promenade. Its also nice to take a rest midway, where there are some benches to relax on and and enjoy the scenery.
It was cloudy on this day, but the overcast and gloomy clouds were actually creating a mystical atmosphere. Red foliage is alway nice to see, but sometimes you want this kind of serene atmosphere.
