Have you ever heard “Korankei Gorge” in Nagoya?
Korankei Gorge is the most famous place for autumn leaves in the Tokai Region.
And, it is the located in Toyota City, Aichi Prefecture.
So, this time we will introduce it in the Autumn which is the best season.
About Korankei Gorge
Korankei is located along a bend in the Asuke River and the riverside hills are full of mature Japanese maple trees.
In fact, there are over 4000 fiery red, zesty yellow, and vivid orange trees scattered along the 5.4km river valley.
I believe the sight of Korankei will take your breath away, so that I want to share lots of photos below.
And you can go through the Maple tree’s tunnel.
High trees are lining on both side so that it like a tunnel of maple tree.
The afternoon sun makes those colored leaves transparent.

In May, the fresh, new leaves aren’t to be missed, and in March, pale purple dog’s tooth violet flowers bloom throughout the gorge, making it a place where you can enjoy the Japanese seasonal changes.
