Shot at Inokashira Park in Kichijoji, Tokyo.
The maple-leaves in the park have turned crimson. The leaves were flapping in the wind and pleasure to the eye. The leaf peeping is called 'Momiji Gari', literally the hunt for maple leaf in Japan.
The history was long. And it was depicted in the Manyoshu, a collection of Japanese poetry which was written about 1300 years ago. Of course, I am also like to celebrate fall foliage. Yet I have a sense of closeness to the proverb. 'Better fill a man's belly than his eye.'
