I'm Teppi, a travel writer.
Today is my third introduction to scenic spots in the Kyushu region😄
Enjoy the spectacular view of autumn leaves in Oita Prefecture !
17th scenic view article📸
I would like to introduce the autumn leaves of Makinoto Pass🍁
Spectacular views of the Kuju mountains and autumn leaves !
Makinoto Pass is a mountain pass located in the Kuju Mountains at an altitude of 1,330m.
This is the highest point on the Yamanami Highway, a famous driving course in the Kyushu region🚘
There are many scenic spots along the Yamanami Highway…
If I introduce it here, the article would be too long, so I will omit it😇
Makinoto Pass has a mountain trail leading to the Kuju Mountains, so there are parking lots and rest houses☕
It's also a perfect spot to take a break during a drive😎
Also, on the opposite side of the mountain trail, there is an observation deck after a short climb🎒
Even without serious mountain climbing, you can easily enjoy the spectacular view of autumn leaves✨
This is the spectacular view of the Kuju Mountains from the Makinoto Observatory !!
The impressive of the mountains is just amazing !
The mountain with three peaks is called Mt. Mimata🤗
From there, you can see the majestic mountain slopes all the way to Chojabaru, which is flat✨
You can clearly see the bright red leaves on the mountain surface of Mt. Mimata👀
Due to the high altitude of the Kuju Mountains, the autumn leaves start to change in October every year📅
In November, the autumn leaves start to fall all the way to the foot of the mountain, so you need to be careful😅💦
The photo of the autumn leaves above was also taken in mid-October one year📸
Kyushu has an image of being warm, but the leaves in the Kuju Mountains turn red early !
