Autumn hits Tokyo much later than in most parts of Japan. In the first week of December we still experienced maximums in the mid-teens (Celcius). That was just enough to turn the leaves yellow.
We were on a visit to Ueno Park, a few subway stops away from Asakusa. It’s one of Tokyo’s cultural precincts with a dozen museums, temples, sports facilities, even a zoo. But many people that day were there to view the leaves.
