  • So it was 1 month is famous for cherry blossoms in Yoshino, but they have made people sparse. Without cherry blossoms, I feel very good air.

  • Close to home for visited in the spring of each year. Reaches a peak and one day tens of thousands of people will come from all over Japan and from abroad. Views it as it captivates the person is limited admission route, so during the day Saturday and Sunday jam, Kintetsu Yoshino line overfull of rush when the city will be. Time I on weekdays 3:00 PM approaching by car to Yoshino because, not completely caught in the jam down the mountain you start climbing the mountain. Café in the queues at the time, if you turn on, not even the toilet. Only the lonely much less people climbing on the senbon or 花矢 Bay Observatory, sunset, so the mountain at your own pace. From the senbon on parking 30-walk in complete darkness until the city takes 40 minutes, so per, so it's good that there is Yang descent!! ️

  • I pick the most crowded time of the season on Sunday morning Yoshino cherry blossom I went there once when it is, the Kintetsu trains also cable car bus road also was filled with people. Was not sure wait for cable cars and buses hours saw all went to on the senbon on foot. Way too easily ago you proceed manually as usual at the fair. But still all a joyful thought I still charm the cherry.
