Toyokawa-City Mt. Miyaji Maple Leaves Festival (Miyajisan Momiji Matsuri)
Date : 12/01/2019
Mt. Miyaji's annual Maple Leaves Festival is held on a Sunday on late November, at the Parking Lot #1 (第一駐車場 Dai-ichi Chushajo) of Mt. Miyaji (宮路山 Miyajisan). A great chance to appreciate the famous “Koaburatsutsuji” shrubs (Enkhiantus nudipes - Ericaceae), tinted in marvelous autumn colors. The hiking path, which entrance's is close to the parking lot, is well maintained and virtually free of dangers, and does not require much physical effort. Other interesting events are held too, but the main attraction is certainly the view from Mt. Miyaji's peak: it is possible to view all the surrounding area, including Mikawa Bay, Toyohashi Port, downtown Toyokawa and Toyohashi cities and, with some luck, even the Mt. Fuji at the distance!
