Travel diary 1 ~ I went to Yamazoe Village, Yamabe-gun, Nara Prefecture! ~

Travel Diary(旅)


It is the origin of the place name, but it is said that the initials of Yamanobe and Soezoe-gun were put close to “Yamazoe”, and it was named “Yamazoe Village” with the meaning of “a village that grows in the mountains as a village in the mountains, a village that develops more as a mountain”.

Nabekurakei is a prefecture-designated natural monument with a huge stone spreading over a total length of 680 meters and spring water springing up, so it is a place that can calm the mind very much.

Then, I would like to introduce Yamazoe Village from now on.

2.Tours and experiences

“Wanpaku Animal”

It is a small zoo, but you can interact directly with animals. There were many cute friends such as white and very beautiful camo, goat, guinea pig and rabbit, and it was very healed.

Children who came in different families can interact with any animal, so they come into contact with animals very much, and I also say, “There’s a very cute rabbit over there!” It was a very warm-hearted zoo where you can get close to not only animals but also people.


“Nunoe no Sato”

You can taste latte based on Yamato tea and mushrooms.

At the beginning of Yamato tea latte, from the sweet and creamy taste, little by little the faint bitterness of Yamato tea spreads in your mouth and you can taste the sweet astringency that you can not usually taste.

The mushroom latte was an irresistible latte for the likes who made you feel this sweetness.

Both can only be tasted here, so let’s go together!

In addition, various souvenirs are sold using vegetables and fruits harvested in Yamazoe Village.

There is nothing else, you can only taste it here, so let’s go together!

By the way, since it is adjacent to naughty animals, children play with animals at the zoo, and adults can take a break while watching over the children on the terrace seats, so I think it is good to stop by for a while and take a break.

4.Temples, shrines, temples, heritage, etc

“The Ruins of Daishoji Temple”

Weeping cherry blossoms (weeping cherry trees) that can be viewed here are village designated natural monuments.

It is a weeping species of Edhigan distributed west of central Hon state, and is called “Itozakura”.

The main pearl grows on the ridge of the cliff, it is 1.2m above the ground, and the trunk is a quarter branch, so the trunk circumference is 285cm 1m above the ground, and there is a tree height” 10m.

In addition, one branch trunk of the trunk branched in the quarter has died in the place of 2 m, but the remaining branch trunk spreads the branch on all fours respectively, and the tree power is vigorous.

It can be said that it is a valuable existence considering the breeding environment such as the high altitude and its location in the northern part of the prefecture.

The best time to see is around April.


This trip was a very idyllic and perfect trip to take a break.

The main is the weeping cherry tree of the Ruins of Daishoji Temple, but it was a trip that did not get bored because you can enjoy the scenery such as Wanpaku Animal, Nunobe No Sato, Nabekurakei, etc. nearby.

Currently, it is difficult to come to Japan due to coronavirus, but please come to Japan when you hear the vaccine calmly.

At that time, I would like to guide you.
