Yoshinoyama is famous for its spectacular cherry blossoms. The entire mountain is covered in cherry blossom trees. It is divided into the four areas of “Shimo Senbon”, the lower forest, “Naka Senbon”, the middle forest, “Kami Senbon”, the upper forest, and “Oku Senbon”, the deep forest, according to the order in which the cherry blossoms bloom in April. As well as the spring, Yoshino is worth visiting at other times of the year: to see the colored leaves in fall and snowscapes in winter.
