Mt. Yoshino (Naka-senbon)吉野山(中千本)

Event

Mt. Yoshino refers to the ridge extending eight kilometers south from the northernmost extremity of Mt. Omine. The mountain is divided into four areas in order of increasing elevation: Shimo-senbon, Naka-senbon, Kami-senbon, and Oku-senbon. The Kimpusen-ji Temple's Zao-do hall, the symbol of Mt. Yoshino, and Yoshimizu Shrine, a World Heritage Site, both stand in the Naka-senbon area. From the grounds of Yoshimizu Shrine, you can get a sweeping view of the fall foliage in the Kami-senbon and Naka-senbon areas. In November, the area around Nakasenbon Park (Ogino Valley) is lit up at night, and visitors can take in the majestic gradations in the colorful leaves.

          Nara Main Areas

          around-area-map

          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.
