    Saishogamine Peak, 285 meters high, on Mount Yuri is well known for having been a battle field in the Nambokucho period (1336–1392). It is the site of a wonderful scenic lookout, offering one of the best nighttime views in Wakayama Prefecture. The view is especially panoramic, taking in the Kinokawa Plain and Togenkyo, and on clear days, it is even possible to see as a far as Awaji Island. Plenty of parking is available, so it is an easy spot to visit. There are fine stands of cherry and peach trees, making Saishogamine an excellent but little-known place for viewing blossoms.
