Autumn Tours


A selection of Journey to the East Autumn Tours features the best autumn colors in each setting; be it in a formal Japanese garden, mountains in the Japan Alps, or rural towns and villages.

These Small Group Tours during autumn in Japan offer one of the best times to see the country because of the magnificent fall foliage and comfortable climate. The Autumn Tours offer a variety of options, some regionally based such as Honshu (the main island), Kyushu (the southern island) and Tohoku (northern Honshu). Other themes include food, garden and art, and walking which use the fall colors as a background. Many of the Autumn Tours of Japan focus on rural and remote parts of Japan as well. Check out our Remote Japan Tours page if your interests are on the less touristy destinations.
All of our Japan Autumn Tours are limited to just 8 guests per tour. The small group size makes it possible to enjoy the ‘real Japan’ in smaller restaurants and visit places well off the beaten path where larger groups just can’t get to.

2022 Autumn Tours of Japan departures

People often ask us when and where are the best places to go and see the autumn colours. The autumn colours trips are individually timed for you to see the best fall foliage in different parts of the county. That is why each of our Autumn Japan Tours have only one or two departures. Our blog about Autumn in Japan discusses more about the best places to visit and what to do in Japan during autumn.
