Okusaga Kyoto Mizuo Attraction

Okusaga Kyoto Mizuo Attraction
Translated by Translation Site

Arashiyama in Kyoto is a well-known sightseeing spot. Arashiyama, Kyoto, has been a popular tourist destination since the Heian-kyo Capital was established some 1,200 years ago. Further back, in Okusaga, there is a village called Mizuo. It is a small village, but it has a history of about 1,200 years and even has an emperor's mausoleum. The mausoleum is dedicated to the founder of the so-called Seiwa Genji, a branch of the Minamoto family that has appeared in Japanese history, including Minamoto no Yoritomo, the founder of the Kamakura shogunate (1185-1333). I wondered if the charm of this place, which was loved by such a person, was the same as the feeling I had when I visited Mizuo as a modern person and felt it was a "wonderful place". I wonder if people of 1,200 years ago had the same thoughts as I do now, and I wonder if the beauty of nature is the same now as it was then.

I also visit this area on rare occasions, and I often meet non-Japanese people along the way. If you come to Arashiyama, please take the train and get off at Hozukyo station. Or, try to go up Mt. Ogura from the road. Ogura and you will see a different world.
