Sky Garden Takami no Sato

Due to COVID-19, the site is closed in 2020 cherry blossom season.

Located south-west of the famous Mount Takami, Takami no Sato is one of the most popular cherry blossom spots in Nara Prefecture, for the 1,000 weeping cherry blossoms covering the entire hilltop. During the full-bloom season, the view from the observatory is truly amazing.

  • The site is open only during the peak season, from April 10 to 30, 9 am to 4 pm (enter by 3:30 pm)
  • Free shuttle service between the parking lot and the entrance is available.
