Sure you have seen cherry blossom everywhere but have you seen it looking like clusters of pink sweet cotton candy "flowing" from the mountain? It's just so amazing to be here but you need to get here early. I only left Osaka at 10ish and to be honest, traveling time back and forth took like 6 hours (inclusive of getting up on Mt Yoshino and managing the crowd) - also because I had to stay on the JR line as much as possible to make full use of my JR pass.
So yes, it was tiring and I only managed to see a little but it was well worth it. Don't see too many foreign tourists like other places, mostly locals. Which is a good thing too.
