Autumn leaves spot

This is a popular spot where maple trees are planted along the lakeshore of Lake Kawaguchi, 830 meters above sea level, for about 1.5 kilometers. As the name "corridor" implies, the overlapping branches of the maple trees and the color of the leaves that have fallen to the ground make for a beautiful tunnel of colored leaves.

There are about 60 maple trees in the area, which were originally planted by the local residents to prevent disasters caused by the overflowing of the Nashi River that runs nearby. Nowadays, when the huge maple trees turn red and yellow, the contrast with the majestic Mount Fuji and the high blue sky becomes a beautiful sight, and the area is now known as one of Yamanashi's representative autumn leaves spots. Not only tourists but also locals enjoy driving and cycling through the area.

It is also the main site of the "Fujikawaguchiko Autumn Leaves Festival " in November every year. From sunset to 10:00pm, the area is lit up. The colored leaves reflected in the night sky create a romantic atmosphere, and you can enjoy a different view compared to daytime.

There is a parking lot in the vicinity, and for tourists who enjoy the autumn leaves on foot, souvenir stores and food stalls are lined up during the season, providing a full festival atmosphere. Enjoy the autumn season to the fullest with the beautiful colored maple leaves and the magnificent view of Mount Fuji.
