Mt. Kawara


This mountain became the setting of the novel The Gate of Youth (Seishun no Mon) by Hiroyuki Itsuki and was made into a TV drama and a movie. This mountain is not called Mt.Kawara by the locals, but instead is referred to as Mt.One, Mt. Two, Mt. Three. As this mountain is rich in limestone, the limestone was mined which reduced the height of Mt.One by half.
