Yamato Sanzan, Kashihara

(3.6/5 based on 35 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.

  • Ear Chengshan 11/16, I visited the 1/17 kaguyama, UNEBI. Had available time on a ridge near the mountain was climbed kaguyama, miminashi. Either there is a small shrine at the Summit, overlooking the foothills. What's there is felt a quiet romance.
