Yatagarasu (八咫烏), the mythological three-legged crow that led the first emperor Jimmu to the plains of Yamato (where I am currently living) to go on and found Japan. The trails running from this shrine to Yoshino are a UNESCO World Heritage site and are lined with ancient temples and hidden histories.
