Ashiya 芦屋市 Autumn

Autumn comes to Ashiya (芦屋市).

Ashiya City in Hyogo which has the highest per capita income in Japan is the only municipality that prohibits gambling facilities, pachinko and small factories. Its identity is maintained through such rules. As a result of its character a number of celebrities including Haruki Murakami live here.

Images of autumn colours some 10 minute drive from Ashiya City centre.


  1. Autumn leaves ga kirei dane!

  2. そうだね。本当にきれいな秋でした。 Some previous years colours were better actually. 2010 was really good but my best and fondest memories are from 2009.
