Momijigari (紅葉狩り) is the Japanese tradition of visiting areas where leaves have turned red in the autumn. The word comes from the two Japanese words momiji (紅葉) meaning "red leaves" or "maple tree" and kari (狩り), "hunting". It is also called kōyō (紅葉). "Kōyō" is another pronunciation of the characters for "momiji".

Here is a list of destinations in Japan for viewing the autumn leaves from Japan. Endless discovery.
