  • Places to go in the fall, said Yoshino cherry blossom season and assumed to be in the summer and doing, I think. We went by car, free parking,, ZAO-do walk and prayed. ZAO-do, good luck God of water, glance at say, the cherry blossom season is also very scenic location. ZAO front there is tofu, kakinoha sushi shop in there lunch of persimmon leaf sushi is fresh, very helpful. Set of noodles was good. Us range Pack if, then. Yoshino is a place like home visits every year since childhood. It is also very soothing place. From abenobashi reach even the limited express train ride in 1 hour 15 minutes Yoshino. Ride it would be Japan's oldest funicular, just a little bit easier is that good? It seems too many hot springs.

  • At the beginning of July I went by train. It is very humid in the sunny during the rainy season. Kintetsu Yoshino station we walk to world heritage sites located in Yoshino Jingu station one before down, Oh Yoshino Jingu, kinpusen-JI Oku senbon kinpu shrine. Too much distance is 8 km climb of more than 600 meters, heat it is defined very. But throughout, temples, shrines and places of scenic beauty, historical sites and makes you forget the fatigue. Next time I'd visited during cherry blossom season.
