Did you know Tokyo and Osaka are among the top 10 destinations people in Singapore are visiting in the first quarter of 2023? While these cities are one of the best places to see fall foliage in Japan during the last quarter of the year, they also serve as a good base for exploring other parts of Japan in winter.
