Best time for Autumn Colours

hello! we are 2 couples from India - aged 40 and 70 respectively planning a 9-10 day trip to Japan this year.

We are keen to see the best of the autumn foliage.

Would September end be a good time or is it too early?

the places we plan to loop in are Tokyo - Nagoya -Okayama- Osaka

September is too early for those places. You should carefully look at these.

The autumn leaves start in September in Hokkaido but don't get that far south until Oct/Nov/Dec
