Autumn Colors in the area

In Enoshima and Kamakura area, usually from the middle of November to the beginning of December is the best season to see autumn colors.
As there are almost yellow-colored leaves in and near around Enoshima Island, we recommend that you go to Kamakura City if you want to see vivid red-colored autumn leaves.
Especially, Hasedera Temple only lights up the garden in Kamakura during autumn colors season, so don't miss it!
