Autumn in Okuhida in mid November

Hi everyone,

I plan to visit Japan in November 2018 to enjoy autumn color.

Starting from Ena Valley, Kiso Valley, Giro Onsen, Okuhida, Takayama, Shirakawago, Kanazawa, Fukui Area, Gifu Area, Aichi Area, and Nagoya.

I got all information except Okuhida onsen.

I plan to arrive in Okuhida on 11 November. Is it too late to enjoy autumn?

I am hoping to get autumn color in the Okuhida Valley as it will be too late for the mountain.

But I could not get specific valleys and location to visit.

Should I forget Okuhida and spend more time in other area?

Thanks

Revin

In your timeline in Chubu and Kansai, peak koyo would be in Kanazawa followed by Kyoto/Nara.

check this out for koyo planning.

Though koyo might have finished in Oku-hida, you may enjoy onsen and Hida-style Kaiseki in onsen ryokans. Take a ride on Shin-hotaka ropeway on clear days.

Thanks for the information.

I have visited Kansai 3 years ago during autumn.

Shin-hotaka ropeway in Mid-November?

Hmmm, the trees will be leafless by then?

Is it good scenery?

I never consider this as an option.

I may have to change my perception.
