Tsukigase Plum Ravine月ヶ瀬梅渓(月ヶ瀬梅林)

Place famous for plum blossoms

Tsukigase Plum Ravine is a forest of plum trees that extends along the Satsuki River (part of Nabari River) ravine. One of the three largest plum forests in Nara Prefecture, it is well known as a site for viewing blossoms. About 10,000 plum trees grow there, and during blossom season, the entire forest is a riot of red and white flowering trees. The Tsukigase Plum Ravine Festival, held during blossom season, attracts large numbers of tourists.

          Nara Areas


          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.
