Yoshino Baigo is the tourist spot known as one of the largest village of plum in Kanto area. It is a little far away from Ome station. About 200 varieties and 25,000 plum trees bloom in spring season. The contrast of the plum trees that differs in color subtly is splendid and fascinates a lot of people every year.
