From Yoshino Ropeway's Senbonguchi station heading towards the mountaintop, some 30,000 cherry blossoms bloom in succession over a period of about 3 weeks. The scenery from Hana-yagura Observatory is particularly superb. The ridge, which runs north to south for about 8 km, offers a landscape of cherry blossoms as far as the eye can see that will leave you speechless.
