This year, the visit of Autumn leaves seems a little earlier. As a guide, I often visit gardens and found some leaves started changing their color. The followings are places not so famous for foreign visitors. I hope it will help you make the itinerary of Kyoto.
These places can not be seen if you take a group tour or the tour offered by a big travel agency. Why don't you ask me?
