SpotShugendo

Yoshino is located near the center of Nara Prefecture and has long been famous for its beautiful cherry blossoms. En-no-gyoja, the founder of Shugendo (c. 7th - 8th century) considered the cherry trees here to be real life embodiments of the gods so thereafter deemed Yoshino to be the center of the Shugendo. Shugendo necessitates ascetic training in the mountains on the path to enlightenment.
