For many centuries, Mount Yoshino has been known as Japan's top viewing spot of cherry blossoms. Approximately 30,000 cherry trees, mainly of a Yamazakura variety, spread over the mountain slopes, ridges and valleys. With many clusters forming a beautiful floral carpet in spring, many poets, calligraphers and painters depict this spot for their artistic subjects.

You can enjoy a long period of floral viewing, as the blossom front gradually moves up from the mountain foot, then to Shimo (lower), Naka (middle), Kami (upper) and finally to Oku (inner) Senbon at the top.

During the cherry blossom season, the mountain usually brings 20,000 visitors a day, but when a special event like the rice-planting or flower memorial festival falls on weekend, the daily turnout reaches up to 400,000.

The area was designed as a National Special Place of Scenic Beauty in 1924 and formed a part of the Yoshino Kumano National Park declared in 1936. The mountain was selected as one of Japan's Top 100 Cherry Blossom Viewing Sites in 1990. Yoshino is also part of "The Sacred Sites and Pilgrimage Routes in the Kii Mountain Range", designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004.

Great view! When you can see over one thousand sakura in one glance, this is a place you can't miss.

一目千本吉野山。

顧名思義,即一目望去可以欣賞對山一千株櫻花盛開。

是體會「數大便是美」之處。

中千本,下千本有可看性,一路上都有人坐在山坡上遠眺櫻花樹海。

折角の桜、なのに車と人のすみ分け出来ていないのは課題。車と歩行者が狭い道で行き交うのは危険。老人、ハンディがある方、旅館を利用する方など車が必要な方がおられるのも事実。もっと工夫が必要。あれでは折角の吉野山の価値が下がるのでは。勿体無い。
