Finally autumn in Tokyo

It seemed like it was never going to get here, but after a few chilly days and even a very brief flurry it finally feels like autumn in Tokyo – in the middle of December. Pleasantly brisk in the morning rolling into a perfectly comfortable afternoon and a noticeable chill in the air in the evenings. Adding to it is that after a month of the odd cherry tree here or there turning, the maple and ginko leaves have finally started to turn and the exposed ones are right at their peak of brilliant gold and red. There have been just enough stormy days that the temporary nature of this state is clearly apparent, but there has been a good string of clear, relatively calm days to get out to some of the parks and enjoy the spectacle before it vanishes.
