Autumn Starts in Daisetsuzan

7 Nov


Last month I visited Shibetsu City, Hokkaido, to give a lecture on music therapy. On the way back home I saw beautiful autumn leaves and wild animals in Daisetsuzan National Park, the largest national park in Japan.

The Ainu called this area Kamui Mintara, meaning Playground of Gods. When you see the majestic mountains, it’s easy to understand why. Check out my new article, “Autumn Starts in Daisetsuzan.”

    Nice article. Our trip next April will have us see cherry blossoms for the first time ( it is my seventh trip and have always been outside both the Sakura and autumn leaves, as I only have limited periods when I can travel because of my work)

    Maybe autumn leaves in 2018!
