Travel Guide - Mount Wakakusa-yama (Mikasa-yama)

InformationInformation

Mount Wakakusa-yama is also called "Mikasa-yama" (Three-shade mountain) since the mountain looks like three round-shape shades are piled up. Like Nara Park, there are many wild deers walking here.
The 342 meters high mountain is coverd with grass which is burnt every year on the night of 4th Saturday of January by fires lighted here and there at its foot. It is called "Yamayaki", which means burning of dead grass on mountain slopes. You can enjoy the panoramic view of Nara Basin from the top of the mountain.

When I look up at
The wide-stretched plain of heaven,
Is the moon the same
That rose on Mount Mikasa
In the land of Kasuga?
