What to Expect

Mt.Yoshino is one of the most popular cherry blossom viewing spots and furthermore one of the most popular changing colors of autumn leaves viewing spots in Japan. Mt.Yoshino boasts 100,000 cherry trees planted in four groves at different altitudes. Each level blooms in succession. Generally you enjoy cherry blossom viiewing only for about a week but in Mt.Yoshino you can enjoy it for nearly one month.

After we arrived at Yoshino Station on Kintetsu line, we take the ropeway, the oldest ropeway in existence in Japan, and visit Kinpusenji Temple. Zaodo, the main hall of the temple, is a magnificent two-story structure thatched with silver cedar bark. It has 34 meters high, 27 meters wide and 26 meters long. The main hall is concecrated by three great images Kongo Zao Gongen, which is said to be equal to the Great image of Buddha of Todaiji Temple in size.

You can have special tofu or bean curd, food, Japanese-style food such as udon, soba and donburi, or a bowl of rice topped with beef, pork and the like for lunch.

From Yoshimizu Shrine, you can enjoy many cherry blossoms called "Hitomesenbon." Have you ever heard of Hitomesenbon ?
Chikurin-in has a stroll garden designed by the tea master Sen-no-Rikyu. You can enjoy beautiful cherry blossoms in spring and changing colors of autumn leaves in fall.

Furthermore an hour's trek take you to Yoshino Mikumari Shrine. The shrine is a popular spot for couples who come to pray for fertility.

I would recommend you join the tour of Mt.Yoshino especially in spring and autumn.

“ Very unconcerned ”

When we first me Hideo the first thing he did was ask for $64 for transport from his house .. I said no and he said ok Did not like that thought it was rude Wherever we want I felt he did not know where we were going He never gave info unless asked and several times did not know answer and never looked up in google as several other guides did I felt he was rude by constantly walking ahead of us and not seeming to care His English was not very good On a level of 1-10 I would give him a 2 I would not recommend him to anyone Trip to Nikko was great in spite of him I just can’t imagine how much better it could of been if we had a good guide like several of our other guides at triplelights

“ Well prepared , knowledgable, and charming guide! ”

We were fortunate to have Hideo show us around the key sights of Kyoto. He organised the day very well to meet our requests , took us to a great lunch venue, and provided some great insights into everything we saw. Hideo has a pleasant and kindly manner and we appreciated his well structured tour. He also provided excellent tips for self touring on other days. Well done to Hideo!

We really enjoyed our time with Hideo. He was very knowledgeable, took us to great places and got us back to our ship with time to spare. He took us to excellent restaurants so that we could try delicious local foods. I would definitely recommend him.
