Events during Autumn
One thing you will notice if you live in Japan for a while is that there are going to be more events than usual during autumn. This is because autumn is considered in Japanese culture to be the perfect season to get in touch with culture. The temperature outside is neither too hot nor too cold, and there are many seasonal foods that can be enjoyed only during this season.
Because of this, many cultural events will be held during autumn. Traditional Japanese Matsuri festivals, events concerning watching the red and yellow leaves of autumn, and events where you can enjoy seasonal foods and drinks. Not only Japanese traditional events, but also international events such as Oktoberfest are held in many parts of Tokyo during autumn.
Since the temperature outside is just perfect, many of these events will be held outdoors. Yoyogi Park, Hibiya Park, Inokashira Park, and Ueno Park are just some of the few places that constantly held events during this season. You will also see many events held on shopping streets (商店街) or near Shito Shrines and Buddhist Temples.
There are also seasonal flowers such as Cosmos and roses which can be seen at some parks or botanical gardens around the city. Talking about seasonal things, there are so many delicious seasonal foods such as chestnuts, sweet potatoes, persimmon, and pacific saury among others. You will see many special “limited time” menus at restaurants using these seasonal ingredients, so be sure to not miss these!
