Kyoto is fast approaching the peak of the annual fall color season, as can be seen in Myoshinji Temple (a few years ago).
Already the leaves are beginning to drop in Kibune and Takao, and other areas up in the mountains.
However, in most areas this coming weekend will be the peak for checking out the red, orange, and yellow leaves under clear (we hope) blue skies.
If you do venture out, you will not be alone.
From the time the temples open until closing time, usually at 5, the roads in the areas around Kiyomizu Temple, Kinkakuji Temple, Ginkakuji Temple, and Nene no Michi are thronged with tourists.
Go early, cycle slow.
