Beautiful cherry blossom spot “Yoshinoyama”

I went to Yoshinoyama in Nara Prefecture, which is famous nationwide as a cherry blossom spot!
The mountain cherry blossoms spread from ridge to ridge, and from valley to valley.
This year, the cherry blossoms bloomed early, and while the cherry trees in Shimo-senbon and Naka-senbon were already starting to fall, the cherry blossoms in Oku-senbon were still beautifully in bloom.
I took a leisurely 5-hour walk from Nyorinji Temple to Mikumari Shrine, Saigyo-an, and Kinpusenji Temple, and fully enjoyed the cherry blossoms of “Yoshino,” a UNESCO World Heritage Site and sacred place of Shugendo! 🌸✨
