A Day Trip For Cherry Blossoms

Getting close to the cherry blossoms season in Spring!
But it’s still cold like Winter here in Kyoto!
Spring is always come and leave unnoticed…

Cherry blossoms blooming is one of the highlights in our life of a year for Japanese people.
We always try to enjoy them as much as we can in the short blooming season.
I prefer watch them from bit far distance and also when it’s leaving.
Let’s talk about how you would like to watch them when you are here haha.

There are so many places to enjoy watching them especially in Kyoto city.
However I’m kind of picky so I would like to recommend this place for a day trip from Kyoto.
Haha, please take it easy. It’s not so weired… I still remember one of our guest asked me for recommendation he would like to do most weired thing in Kyoto but he already had a huge staffed bird sculpture on his left shoulder and he already had been to birds cafe with it in Kyoto.
Finally I couldn’t give any better weired recommendation in Kyoto to satisfy him… Sometimes I thought about him… You can find his photo in the gallery page on our website:-)

Anyway! About cherry blossoms place.

The place called Yoshino mountain, Yoshinoyama, 吉野山, in Nara prefecture next of Kyoto prefecture.
