Kashihara is located roughly in the middle of Nara Prefecture.
Here, in a location in-between the three peaks of Mt. Unebi, Mt. Miminashi and Mt. Kagu, was once the Fujiwara-kyo Palace that served as Japan’s first capital about 1,300 years ago back in the days of Manyo (7th century).
The area has many historical sites associated with the creation of Japan as a state.
