On Kishu Road, there is a park called Arare Matsubara. Matsubara means pine tree field, and it tells that there used to be a beach with beautiful white sand around here. In 706, Emperor Monmu’s son, Naganomiko, visited here and his song is appeared in Manyoshu, the oldest existing collection of Japanese poetry.
