Autumn leaves at Gold Mine

If you are in SADO Island in Nov, you can enjoy autumn leaves here.

You can easily see them at Gold Mine without climbing mountain.

You can also see colored leaves on your way to the Gold Mine, too.

I went there at the end of Nov, and beautiful leaves greeted me at the entrance.

Even a wooden bench is covered by red and orange leaves.

It seems warm red carpet.

This place is quiet and very relaxing in fall, so you would love to spend some time here with a cup of hot tea.
