It's still a bit too early for photos of beautiful maple/ginkgo leaves. See how they were on Nov. 28th in 2005. This year, on Nov. 25th, those trees are still pretty much green, and I'm going to have to wait a couple more weeks before I go to Josei park and Kochi castle with my camera.

These are some photos I took in my neighborhood today when I went walking along a small river. 

This was a huge tree with so many small persimmons hanging all over. Rather unusual.

Maybe astringent type?

Reed bed?

Comfortable shelter for ducks.

A cedar tree by an old, small shrine and a ramen stall which opens around sunset.

Beautiful pictures! Are the leaves turning color late in Japan this year? Autumn has come slowly here in the states, usually by mid-October the leaves are beautiful but it wasn't until mid-November that they were in full color.

Hi Donna!
Yeah, it has been pretty warm this year. Makes me worried about global warming.

I have always looked forward to your pictures, and I am glad you put these up. Very beautiful and artistic, especially the last one!
