Yoshino Mountain is famous for its many thousands of sakura trees, and is heavily referenced in both traditional Waka and folk song for its abundance of flowers in the spring, with famous poets such as Chiyo offering prose on the peak and its many flowers. These flowering specimen trees were planted in four groves at different altitudes, in part so that the famed trees would come into bloom at different times of the spring.
