There is observatory here but nothing much to see in my opinion but can visit and walk around if your time permits.

Are you after some really nice photos, this is the place.
Especially when you are here during Sakura flowering.

The hole Valley is full of them, and this is said to be one of the most famous spots...

吉野山の奥千本口と言うバス停で下車し、金峯神社や西行庵、苔清水の見学をした後に麓に向けて歩いて行く途中に高城山展望台があったので立ち寄ってみました。

展望台に向かう道の入口のモミジの紅葉が見事でした。まだ周りの木は緑の方が多いですが、ここのモミジはまるで火が燃え上がる様な美しさでした。
先ほど見た西行庵周辺もキレイでしたが、ここのモミジは半端ない美しさですね。

そのモミジの美しい場所から少し登...

          With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of "traditional Japan." The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture’s treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains’ Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
