What will be the effect of the hot summer on the timing of the fall foliage? I'm coming to Japan (flying into Narita) in the first two weeks of November; I want to spend one week in Tokyo seeing friends and one week traveling with a JR pass. Originally I was going to spend the first week in Tokyo and then go traveling to maximise my chances of seeing the foliage a bit later in the month. (I've done this trip before many years ago). With such a hot summer though will it make much difference - or would people still advise leaving the traveling part of my trip (to Kyoto etc.) to the second week?
