Mt Yoshino 吉野山

Mt Yoshino is another famous cherry blossom viewing area. It's a small town/village set on the ridge of the mountain that turns pink in spring as thousands of sakura trees come into full bloom. Again I was lucky to visit just at the right time.

The trip to Yoshino requires a change of train at Osaka-Abenobashi Station and also at Kashiharajingu-Mae Station though if I had of relied on Google Maps I would have missed this one as their directions tell you to 'stay on same vehicle' when in fact the train is split and leaves half its carriages behind. Unfortunately I was on the carriages that got left behind so I ended up losing my seat. Once you arrive in Yoshino Station you are required to catch a bus to the town, you can't walk as it would mean traversing some dangerous, winding mountain roads that are not made for pedestrians.

The bus drops you off near the end of town but it's still a 45 minute walk to the main Hanayagura View area that gives you the famous view of the town. So we begin the long walk....

Ameji Kannondo Ruins (雨師観音堂跡). Not sure what the ruins are, it just seemed like a little shrine with a nice view...

This is the classic Mt Yoshino cherry blossom view, which you will find at various elevations on the walk up to the main Hanayagura View....

The large temple is Kimpusen-ji (金峯山寺), the head temple of a branch of the Shugendo religion called Kimpusen-Shugendo in Yoshino. You'll see close ups a bit later....

I'm really envious of people living there. It's impossible to recreate this anywhere else outside Japan. Incredible place.

Thanks for photos!

From what I've experienced in Japan they are pretty blasé about it. They always ask me quite incredulously 'why would you want to holiday in Japan?' as if their country isn't a worthy destination and they fail to see the attraction.
