I was never in Tokyo in the Autumn but was there in the summer. I lived mostly in Sendai, Shiogama, Matsushima area. Not long after the war and most of the trees like these you photographed were just being planted as most trees were destroyed by fire bombing during the war years. I am happy those days are over.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my blogging buddies...

@Abraham Tokyo is now filled with this trees, and looks fantastic in the autumn.
@Adelaide Tokyo looks great but is really the mountains that explode in colors in autumn, I just went to a beautiful area, but unfortunately I didn't have opportunity to take photos, the view was breathtaking.

Merry Christmas a happy new year.
