Introduction

In 2020, we found ourselves in the middle of COVID-19 and Kyoto is having “Autumn leaves season” with it.

In this article, I’ll show top 10 places to enjoy the season avoiding so-called “Three C’s.”

“Three C’s is a phrase invented by Japanese government to cope with the pandemic;

  1. Closed spaces  with poor ventilation
  2. Crowded places with many people nearby
  3. Close-contact settings such as close-range conversations

In a nutshell, it means the ways to avoid crowded places.

Considering the aim of the article, I will not introduce famous places like Eikando temple, Kiyomizudera-temple and other popular autumn leaves spots. Enjoy such places in the articles below.

We say “red” but some may say “vermilion.”

Actually, most of them are retouched with photo apps and there are a few places to see bright red ones.
