Kōrankei Momiji Festival

Free

The Kōrankei Gorge is home to around 4,000 color-changing maples. This year there will be illuminations from sundown until 9 p.m. throughout November as part of the annual autumn festival. There will also be a host of tasty fall treats, from dango to special ramen dishes. Usually there are stage performances, but these have been canceled for 2022.

How to get there

From Nagoya, Kōrankei can be reached via multiple routes. One of the simplest is to catch the Meitetsu Line to Higashi-Okazaki (30 minutes), then catch a Meitetsu bus from there (70 minutes).

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
