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.

“ A Sensational Day Out ”

We had Hideo as our guide for a Hiroshima Tour. We were staying at Osaka and he picked us up at our Osaka Hotel and directed us to the Shinlansen fast train by local train. This was absolutely stress free and I would recommend it. We had Hideo for close to 12 hours from our Hotel and back. This made things very easy. His English is good and he had excellent knowledge. We were a group of 8 and he was excellent in communicating with us all. We visited Miyajima Island and Itsukushima shrine on the island. He introduced us to local food and delicacies. We had a beautiful Oyster Lunch which are farmed locally. We then visited the Atomic Bomb Dome and the Peace Memorial Museum and had plenty of time to look round this area. Hideo was VERY knowledgeable about the history round this and explained... read more

Hideo:

Hello Brian I'm very happy to receive your message. We could have delicious oysters for lunch. Actually culrured oysters in Hiroshima account for 50 percent of the total production in Japan. I hope you enjoy watching the Rugby World Cup in the stadium and Japan trip. Thank you, Brian.
