Yamato River
The Yamato River is an extension of the Hatsuse River, which flows through Nara Prefecture. The Yamato begins where the Kamenose River, which flows through the craggy peaks of the Ikoma and Kongo mountain ranges, ends. The river originally flowed north from the Ishikawa confluence point (in Kashiwara City), where it joined the Shirinashi and Kizu rivers. However, in 1704, the river was reconfigured to its present course. Approximately 1 km of the broad riverside area running east-west between Abiko Ohashi Bridge and the JR Hanwa Line tracks features tennis courts, sports fields, and a year-round flower plaza.
