Mt Yoshino, with around 30,000 trees of 200 varieties, that bloom all over the mountain. THIS IS AN EXTRAORDINARY SHOW PUT ON BY NATURE....my favorite place to see the Sakura:)

3. Top of Sakura World: https://youtu.be/0xJjoDm-cPw
4.Kinpusen Temple (World Heritage): https://youtu.be/2pQ4J1Jo0-g
Last year when it blossomed many girls came out in kimonos to stroll amongst the flowers. The spirit of this place is a deep part of why Sakura goes with the small villages seemingly untouched by time.
Apart from the sakura we take you to a hidden gem. An enchanting, mysterious forest where you will find all these twisted and bent tree....real bizzare. Kinpusen Temple will also be visited. The second largest wooden structure in Japan...the size is mezmerising!!! It is the head temple of the branch of the shugendo religion and is a major pligrimage route for their devote followers.
