Ano Plum Grove賀名生梅林
Ano Plum Grove, which boasts 20,000 plum trees, is in bloom from late February to late March, with plum blossoms covering the hillsides. This grove has a long history and was even the topic of a poem written 700 years ago during the Nanboku-cho period. In 1877, cultivation of the plum trees for their fruit began. Then in 1923, in commemoration of the marriage of the Crown Prince (later the Emperor Showa), 5,000 more plum trees were planted, and the number of plum trees has continued to increase since then.

Nara Main Areas
With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of âtraditional Japan.â 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.
