Mitake, Mie, Japan

Mitake (三多気) is a tiny village on a mountain near the border of Nara, located within the Tsu outlands, that is well-known throughout the prefecture for being beautiful during the cherry blossom season. There are a lot of cherry blossoms scattered all over the Mitake area, with arguably the most picturesque being a hilly area with a mixture of tiered rice fields and yama zakura trees. There are some buildings and a small temple in the area as well.
