In Nara Park, there are many Chinese Tallow Trees.
I’ve been enchanted by their autumn foliage since I moved to Nara City.I'll pick up three places I like to see their colored leaves.
Along the road bridge over Ara-ike Pond, one of the gateways to Nara Park,
the leaves of Chinese Tallow Trees turn colors
a little earlier than the other places.

At Daibutsu-ike Pond, I always enjoy the playfulness of light, shadows,
and the colored leaves.
Which reflection do you prefer, translucent water-color, with gold, or oil-painting touch?

Ukigumo Park of the Nara Park gets ablaze with spectacular colors in mid-November.
1. The green leaves start turning colors in mid-October.
2. Yellow, orange, red and pale green colors can be seen on one tree in late October.
3. At its best early to mid-November
4. Seed covered with white wax

Ukigumo Park is a popular site for school excursion and wedding memorial photography.
Every one enjoys his/her/its share of pleasure.
Almost all the leaves fall to the ground mid-to-late November
and only seeds covered with a layer of pure white wax remain into December.
The trees stand proud and bare in January next year.
