Momiji season in Tokyo
Late Autumn in Japan is one of the country's most beautiful seasons, most would agree. Of course, one of the best parts of fall in Japan is the colours. Naturally, this means engaging in the ultimate autumn pastime — momiji-gari (also known as koyo). Momiji-gari literally means "hunting red leaves," which is the main draw for many visitors to Japan in autumn. It derives from momiji (red leaves, or maple tree), and kari (hunting).
Much like the sakura zensen, tracking the koyo zensen — the progress of the autumn colours across the country — is an annual routine in Japan. The leaves follow a wave of colour beginning from the north (Hokkaido) and working its way down south to Kyushu and Okinawa. The good news is that late November and early December is the very best time to enjoy the plenty of Momiji in Tokyo and surroundings!
Kamakura (Dr. Terauchi's favourite place in Japan)
November, 29. Guided tour (optional).
When you think about the best temples near Tokyo, often it's Kamakura that comes to mind first. Kamakura was effectively the country's capital during the Kamakura period of history between 1185 and 1333. It was during this period that the country saw the creation of the samurai warriors and the feudalism in Japan. To support this, enormous temple complexes were built with religious and political significance. It was an extremely influential part of the country's history and what remains in Kamakura today reflects that.
For visitors to Japan, a day trip to Kamakura is one of the best ways to spend your time. But there are lots of things to do in Kamakura and you'll need to have a bit of a plan to make the most of the trip. Weve put together this Kamakura day trip itinerary that will take you to the highlights and show you a good mix of the variety on offer here.

Get-together dinner with Dr. Terauchi in a Japanese Style
November, 30. Gonpachi Nishi-Azabu "Kill Bill" (optional).
Japan is definitely a country for fish lovers: there are many specialties that attract foodies, but for sure fish and sushi are never missing in the menus. On November,30 in the end of the first day of the event we are organizing a get-together dinner with Dr. Terauchi. The dinner will be held in one of the oldest traditional restaurants of Tokyo - Gonpachi Nishi-Azabu "Kill Bill". This will be mainly tempura and sushi, but believe us - this will be sushi you have never tried before!!!
By the way, if you like Kill Bill movie, you will immediately recognize this place! Quentin Tarantino had dinner here one night and he got so inspired by the interior of the restaurant that he based the set of one of his famous "Kill Bill" fight scenes ("The Bride VS Gogo Yubari") on this place. That got this place the name "Kill Bill Restaurant Tokyo" forever!
Due to restaurant space limitations we have to limit the number of places - there are only 50 seats available for the dinner. Please make sure you have made your reservation on time if you want to join us for the dinner.
