Every year, autumn comes to my little corner of northern Japan. I always great it with a smile, but I know it will be a fleeting visit. Unlike Kyoto or Tokyo, Autumn arrives in Iwate quickly and it only lasts for a handful of weeks. I treasure every moment I have with it. This year, I took many photos during the autumn season. Autumn in Hachimantai can be thought of as two sub seasons: The color season, and the golden season. For this years photos I will show you some of my best examples of each sub season. If you can, you should really try to come here during the autumn season. Japan becomes one of the most beautiful places on Earth during this time. Well, at least in my humble opinion.
