Nanakoshi-mine Peak

Place famous for cherry blossoms
This peak is a 60-minute drive from the Kamitonda Interchange on the Kisei Expressway via National Routes 42 and 311. It stands to the east of Kumano Hongu Shrine and at the southern edge of the Omine Mountain Range. It is one of the Eight Scenes of Kumano Hongu, and it affords a view of Kumano Hongu Shrine and the old shrine site Oyu-no-Hara, the largest tori (shrine gate) in Japan and the village around the shrine. Nankoshi-no-mine Forest Park on the 260-meter peak boasts nearly 2000 cherry trees of different varieties, so it is a popular spot for people to view the spring blossoms. At the summit of the mountain, which enshrines the bodhisattava Enmei Jizo, is a stele featuring a poem by the 12th-century priest and poet Saigyo Hoshi.
