Beautiful foliage

Yesterday I went to Mino(箕面みのお) in Osaka Prefecture to see the foliage with the members of the English Kimono School(The Takatsuki Branch of Hana Kyoto Kimono School).

We have several outing events throughout a year.Every fall we go out to enjoy autumn leaves in Kyoto, Nara or Osaka.  Don’t you think  Kimono matches the colors and the atmosphere of the Japanese autumn season?

We enjoyed the beautiful and delicious cuisine of Otowa Sanso(音羽山荘)restaurant after taking a walk along the river. They maintain the retro building and the view from the eating room was awesome.
