“If you brave the crowds to see Yoshino in the springtime, you won't regret it. Just be sure to get up early to avoid the midday tide of humanity. And book an advance seat on the train home!”

Thousands of people come here each day during April to enjoy a sake picnic under the blossoms. The cherry trees are divided into four areas which are easily covered on foot. In spring a bus also runs between the areas and you could take the cable car up the mountain to avoid a steep uphill walk. Yoshino also has a long history and was even a refuge for the Emperor Go-Daigo who established a competing second imperial court there in the 14th century.
