Amazing View of Silver Grass Field in Nara

Only an hour away from Kyoto and Tokyo, Nara is an area where you can feel the history.

As November approaches, leaves start to turn color and offer beautiful scene of fall. It is not only the autumn foliage that Nara has to offer.

In mid September, little before autumn foliage, you can enjoy a magical view of silver grass field in Soni Kogen (曽爾高原).

The contrast of the light and darkness makes the silver grass field so photogenic. Make sure to bring your camera along to capture this view.

Enjoy the tranquil and mystical walk in Soni Kogen this fall. Be sure to dress warm as it does get cold after sun goes down.
