Koyo viewing, or autumn leaf viewing, is a tradition in many cultures and there is no better place to experience this than on your romantic hike. After the scenic hike, you then make your way to the serene lakeside, where a cozy picnic spot awaits you to enjoy the stunning sunset.
- As the sun sets, creating a shimmering reflection on the lake, you lay out a cozy blanket, unpack your picnic basket, and immerse yourselves in the peaceful atmosphere. Over cups of hot chocolate, you share stories, dreams, and lots of laughter. The warmth of the hot chocolate and the serenity of the surroundings create the perfect setting to enjoy each other's company and create memorable moments.

- Wearing comfortable walking or hiking shoes is recommended as you will be trekking on nature trails. Dress in layers as the temperature can fluctuate. Pack a picnic blanket, a thermos with warm hot chocolate, some sandwiches or light snacks and don't forget a pair of binoculars to spot wildlife if you’re interested.
