Chikurin-in Gumpo-en

Recommendation by Lemi

Guests book hotels as far as a year in advance to experience Yoshino’s cherry blossom-viewing (Hanami, 花見). The competition is even stiffer for a charming inn like Chikurin-in Gumpo-en. From late March to mid-April, this ryokan becomes an outpost for tourists. The hefty price is well worth it, since the surrounding mountains in Yoshino explode with pink flowers. A fortunate few are spoiled by 30,000 trees of 200 varieties. All you have to do to revel in the season is slide open your paper panel windows or take a stroll around the neighborhood. You might even see women dolled up in beautiful kimonos!
