Fujiwara Ancient Palace Ruins
Fujiwara Ancient Palace Ruins was the first full-scale castle town built in Japan. A variety of beautiful flowers are planted here each season, allowing visitors to enjoy a bed of rape blossoms, lotuses, and cosmos, among others. The view of the ridgeline formed by the three mountains of Yamato (Mt. Miminashi, Mt. Kagu, and Mt. Unebi) was designated as an "Important Landscape" in June 2011.
