Scenic Hiking In Autumn! Panoramic Fall Foliage View Of Yoshino Mountains

Yoshino Mountain is a famous cherry blossom spot in spring, and also its fall foliage in autumn is beautiful. The colored leaves spread to the whole of mountain, and it comes down gradually, so you can enjoy it for a long term. You must see them from Hanayagura Observatory!

Shining Zao-do Temple In The Sea Of Clouds Before Dawn

When I arrived at three in the midnight, the sea of clouds had appeared and made the scenery more wonderful. I took this picture at 4:00. The sea of clouds changes its size and form every day, so you can see the various stunning view whenever you visit!

Breathtaking Sacred Shrine Which Hideyoshi Had Visited
