Autumn-colored leaves in Mitake Shosenkyo Gorge

Main content starts here.

Area:Kofu/Shosen Gorge

Mitake Shosenkyo Gorge, nationally designated as a Special Place of Scenic Beauty, is known as one of the best autumn-color viewing spots. In the gorge, Kakuenbo and many other bizarrely shaped stones with white surfaces contrast favorably with red and yellow leaves, and delight the eyes of visitors. The famous Nagatoro Bridge, a popular gateway to Shosenkyo Gorge, surrounded by autumn leaves, is a truly picturesque landscape. Also, vigorous waterfalls like Senga Waterfall and Otaki Waterfall of Itajiki-keikoku Gorge and autumn leaves make a landscape overwhelmingly beautiful. This beautiful autumn landscape in grand nature is located around 30 minutes from the city area of Kofu, so many tourists visit here. Since Shosenkyo Gorge is very long with a large difference in elevation, we can enjoy the beautiful autum colors for more than one month.
■The best time to see the autumn colors is from mid-October to late November.
■Main kinds of trees: Maple, lacquer tree, sumac, Japanese rowan, and sawtooth oak
