YAMATO THREE MOUNTASINS IN NARA.

 We climbed up a hill named Amakashino-Oka. We could see three mountains from the top of the hill.

    曾我氏の邸宅が有ったと言われる、甘樫丘に登りました。大和三山が良く見えました。

Miminashiyama mountain.

Unebiyama mountain.

Kashihara Jingu shrine is located near the foot of Unebiyama mountain.

A new captital was constructed among the three mountains in 694  AD.
The new capital was named Hujiwara-Kyo.

藤原京は持統天皇によってこの三つの山の内側に694年に作られました。


Then wewent to a stone hut of a powerful family at Asuka Era.

A stone hut named Ishi butai kohun. This hut was buried in an ancient tomb mound.


The backside of the hut.

We can enter the in side of the hut.  There was a coffin inside of this hut.
It is said this ncient tomb mound was the last big one for the powerful family.

  1. I'm amazed at all the contrasts in the landscape in such a small area: the forested mountain, the city, and the rice paddies - they all look like they came from different parts of Japan and were assembled there! :-) It's nice that the mountain is still covered with trees and not roads, ski slopes, or houses. It's a really lovely landscape, and the photos you got of it look like they were worth the climb!

    Love the red spider lilies! And the temple is lovely and the ancient tomb fascinating (I love that sort of thing). You go on the most interesting adventures!

    1. Dear Laloofah.
      Thank you very much for your comment. I am very pleased that you like my post. The emperor system had established in this era and had great authority. Any ancient tomb mound had not made any more from this era.
      Thank you again.

  3. It's always interesting to see how life is lived in other countries.In Japan there are so many beautiful forested areas,I think you must have a different attitude to trees.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Enjoy your week,

  7. こんにちは、大和三山や石舞台の写真も素晴らしいですが、5枚目の秋空の写真は最高ですね。お見事です。ヘルシンキのどんよりとした曇り空を毎日、見てると、日本の秋空の素晴らしさや、山野草の趣を、あらためて感じました。

  17. こんばんは

    奈良へご旅行されたんですね。すばらしい青空の下、棚田も石舞台もみんなとてもステキです。私が最後に奈良方面へ行ったのは、08年。 記事を拝見して、また訪ねたくなりました。大和三山、とても美しく撮れています。

  18. 甘樫の丘からの大和三山の周りに広がる黄金の稲穂、この景色はすばらしいです。ずっと昔からこの光景は受け継がれてきたんだと思います。2回程この地を訪れた事がありますが、政治文化の中心地だったとは思えない程、静かでした。

      こんばんは。以前、藤原宮に行った時は、なんだか分からずに見て来ましたが、甘樫の丘から見ると持統天皇がここに遷都した事が、実感として伝わってきました。里中満智子の漫画を読んでみたくなりました。
       帰りの電車で「古墳とヤマト政権」白石太一郎著を読みました。天武天皇の時代以降、古墳が造られなくなった訳をようやく理解しました。
