Managed to catch the yaesu sakura in bloom so it was lovely to drive up the the mountain road lined by sakura trees. The light up was disappointing compared to the one in Nakijin Castle but there is no admission charge here.

Was a really relaxed trip. Away from the city and beautiful Sakura blossoms. The festival was as to be expected. Lots of game booths, food booths and a few kid rides which were expensive. There is a fairly new kids park with a obstacle course and slide. This is a nice place to visit with family even outside of cherry... More

This was my first time cherry blossom viewing and this was definitely the extra cherry on top for our trip, as we weren't aware of the early blooming season in Okinawa. When we visited Mt.

There are a network of parks and interesting sites going up this mountain! Great spot for photos if you don't have the energy to climb Katsuudake

Mt. Yadake usually catches my attention only during the months of Jaunary and February because that is Sakura, or Cherry Blosssom Season. The hill is very steep and it is on a winding country road so, driving slowly is advised. There are parking areas and a few places along the route and when blossoms are in full bloom, festival tents... More
