Incredible blossoms

The walk up the mountain is beautiful, lots of nice viewpoints and breathtaking views. Bring water and be prepared to walk! it is quite steep in parts (along roads)

The flowers were mostly gone in Shitasenbon (lower thousand-tree) and Nakasenbon (middle thousand-tree), whereas trees in Kamisenbon (upper thousand-tree) and Okusenbon (inner thousand-tree) are still in full bloom. In my opinion, the... More
