Setting Sun in Yamato-Sanzan (Three Mountains of Yamato)


Ancient poem of selecting a husband in Sanzan
“Mt. Kagu fought against Mt. Miminashi over his loved one Mt. Unebi. It had been that way ever since the dynasty of the gods. If that had been the way, it seems natural that men would fight over a bride.”
(The Anthology of Myriad Leaves, 1-13, Crown Prince Nakano-oue)
Mythical figure protected by Mt. Kongo, Katsuragi, Futakami, and Mt. Aogaki to the west.
