 What's MIYAMA? 〜
      「lonely planet」

If you yearn for a glimpse of old rural Japan, head to lovely Miyama-cho, a town nested in the Kitayama mountains of northern Kyoto-fu. The'town' is composed of several village clusters spread over a large area. These picturesque hamlets are home to an abundanceof traditional Kayabuki-yane(thatched-roof)farmhouses thatched with a thick roof of long susuki(pampas grass)reeds. Miyama-cho has become a popular home for artists, and is also gaining attention from outdoor enthusiasts for its excellent hiking,camping and kayaking on the Yura-gawa. It is possible to travel to Miyama-cho as a day trip from Kyoto,but it makes a much nicer overnight trip.
KITAMURA Miyama-cho’s star attraction is Kitamura (North village) a small hamlet boasteing a cluster of some 50 thatched-roof farmhouses. In 1994 the village was designated a national preservation site, and the local government has been generously subsidising the exorbitant cost of rethatching the roofs(at an average cost of¥6million more than US$50,000!) There's not much to do in the village except walk around and admire the wonderful old houses.
