The person, by wearing the Blue clothing, shalt landed the gold field. This is in the Studio Ghibli movie “Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind”, is the passage of the legend of the wind in the valley. Location, such as the gold of the field is located in the Kansai region. About 3 hours by car from the city of Kyoto, is “Soni plateau (light source to its)” in Nara Prefecture.
Open space and clean air, recommended plateau refresh
Northeast end of the Nara Prefecture, Soni plateau located on the border of the Mie Prefecture.The location of the beautiful view that is specified in the Muro red-eye Aoyama National Park.Refreshing plateau landscape of MurasakiMiki MidoriYo in the summer, and the future of the season, pampas grass shaking the golden ears in sunset glow is, you can enjoy a fantastic landscape that spread in full before your eyes. In less than three hours by car from Kyoto city also said in the lower town, so close to is a good access to the superb view of Kaochidani and red-eye, recommended to enjoy the fall foliage. The view from the highest part is what is also great.
It is to the highest part of the plateau there is a staircase up to the middle. It will be craggy places like rock face is visible from the middle, but here is the goal you see is right there. Since it arrived in from climbing the beginning about 20 minutes to 30 minutes, please try to climb all means when visiting the plateau.
Plateau of your Kamechi looks like a small Lake Biwa
In the center of the plateau there is a pond called “your Kamechi”. Sense of intimacy is springing up in a small Lake Biwa like and to check from the highest part.
Because in this pond there is a legend that do not know a little better introduction.
Once upon a time, young people living in Taroji is, married to a beautiful woman that your turtle.However, your turtle after gave birth to a child, it will back to home. Because the child is the cry at night, young man was going to got the milk to your turtle, it gave me the milk only once came our turtle until you Kamechi. However, since then also often to cry at night, also go to the got milk, angry your turtle becomes a serpent, called the appeared in this your Kamechi.
Why the serpent, why happened, there are still why out was carried out, not help but inspire a number of questions such as the legend. It was an aside.
Finally, introduce the views from the highest part. Because it easily accessible by car because the road has been paved, I also recommend going to a lover or friend and drive incidentally play.
