Yamato Sanzan, Kashihara
(3.7/5 based on 30 reviews on the web)
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.

  • So you stayed close to Yamato-Yagi station ear Chengshan-Fujiwara-Kyo trail-Mt.-Archaeological Institute of Kashihara Museum-UNEBI-Kashihara-Jingu Shrine and walked, went. Ear Chengshan pretty easy still walk course Mt. UNEBI is somewhat austere feeling low mountain hiking is. Feel the history so wandered here and there with no sense of direction, but for the morning at 9:00 in a departure could traverse in the evening while I is recommended in Festival walk. It is thanks to people who kindly help me know the UNEBI mountain trailhead, stood in front of a map.

If we walked the trails of width 1 m. Along the way, the Takeshi Emperor ling. Is very mysterious and contracted care. There are countries always otategami company kaguyama mountain summits (152 m). And finally listen nariyama. Climb the stairs and along the way there ears Chengshan Yamaguchi shrine. Great view from the top (139 m).
