Rikugien Autumn Leaves Light-up
Nov 17, 2019 at 9:00 am - Dec 9, 2019 at 9:00 pm¥300
From mid-November to early December the elegant grounds of Rikugien’s landscaped gardens will be illuminated, allowing guests to admire the reds and golds of the trees in their full autumnal splendor. The trail takes around 90 minutes to complete and winds through different areas designed to represent passages from “Kokin Wakashu,” an early anthology of waka, a form of Japanese poetry. Although the leaves are stunning during the day, the gardens are even more photogenic in the evening. Expect it to get more crowded as the sun starts to set.
