  • I went to see the cherry blossoms a few years ago, but the time was a little late and I was not satisfied. This time, I checked the time and went to see the cherry blossoms at the best time.

  • Yoshinoyama bus tour continued in early April last year. This year, we were able to enjoy the cherry blossoms in full bloom. Cherry blossoms are good. The bus tour is the best for yoshinoyama cherry blossom sightseeing. Don't bother people with a car.

  • Lots of people, which is justified however. It's stunning, if you hit the right timing.
  • It’s quite a nice place but definitely lots of tourists and shops dedicated to them. They had a lot of cherry blossoms but I don’t think I would go out of my way again to come back (1.5 hours from Osaka one way). Worth the experience but other than that, nothing too special
