Everyone knows about the 桜 (sakura) time and 花見 (hanami) parties, but the complementary time in 秋 (aki) is the coming of the 紅葉 (kouyou) when the leaves around Japan start to change colors.
If you are planning to visit Japan, I highly recommend autumn, especially if you are a nature person. The weather is no longer blistering hot and the rainy season is over, so you can go outside and do some excellent hiking.
