The heavily forrested Miyama Town is situated near the center of Kyoto Prefecture. The Miyama River, part of the Yura River system, passes through here, and its clear streams are famous for producing Ayu fish, or sweetfish. Another river, the Tanano River, which runs from north to south, passes through as well, and there are many thatched houses along the river. This region, without a doubt, is one of the regions still blessed with unspoilt, original landscapes of Japan.
