Yamato Sanzan, Kashihara

(40 reviews on the web)
Mountain Landmark
Yamato Sanzan or "the three mountains of Yamato", in Kashihara, Nara Prefecture, Japan, are Mount Kagu, Mount Unebi, and Mount Miminashi. Celebrated in Japanese poetry, they have been jointly designated a Place of Scenic Beauty. Jimmu, first Emperor of Japan, is said to have built his palace on the southeast side of Mt Unebi; he is enshrined at Kashihara Jingū. Archaeological study in the 1990s has shown that, rather than their surrounding Fujiwara-kyō on three sides, the "palace-city" was so large as to encompass the three mountains.

  • Is a ridge near mountain climbing for the first time. It is 199 m elevation. Surprised how many people have climbed considerably. 見通semasu Kashihara city from the Summit. You can see Mt. katsuragi to Mt. Nijo-San Sanzan ear Chengshan, heaven kaguyama is, of course. Look up once what? Greater Mt. UNEBI and kaguyama in heaven can be posted separately, rather than to chunk the Matcha. Just listen Chengshan alone published.

Also, Windows open and it is on the 2nd floor of Tsuji of Yagi Yagi town guide is here visible ears nariyama and Mt. UNEBI, guided me around. Be it felt could now see only at the top of the mountain by ancient people on the Plains and mountains have a mystery.
