Though this place is famous for cherry blossoms, I decided to go ahead after learning that it is also the place for autumn leaves. However, I think we were too early (mid-Nov). Thought we can visit Kinpusenji Temple, but it was under renovation. Nevertheless, it...More

Don't say that Mt. Yoshinoyama is a cherry-blossom spot because it is not correct. It should be the forest of cherry trees, or a fairy tale of cherry blossom. When I saw it at the first sight, I fell in love. It was not over-reaction,...More

I went to Yoshino on the second week of April. Wonderful sakura blossoms can be found everywhere. The best way is to get on the bus (only available during sakura blossom season) twice up to Oku Senbon Guchi. I suggest instead of taking the Ropeway,...More

I really wanted desperately to ensure that I caught the best viewing period I could get so I booked the only vacancies I could find which were from 4th to 7th April. That's considered quite early for the Yoshino season. Typically the cherry blossoms start...More
