5 years ago26 views

Yamanobe no Michi is a hiking trail which runs north to south on the eastern foot of mountains in the Nara basin. The path was originally part of the Shinkaido, or "new road", a 1,679 km long route originating in Edo, or present day Tokyo, and is recognized as Japan's oldest road. Some of the shrines that you may encounter when walking along the Yamanobe no Michi include Omiwa Shrine, as well as lesser known shrines such as Yatogi Shrine, Izanagi Shrine, Hakusan Shrine and Anasenimasu Shrine.
