The Yoshiki River (吉城川) is more a brook than a river. It originates between Mt. Wakakusa and Mt. Kasuga. When it is running through Kasuga Primitive Forest, it is called the Mizuya River (水谷川). The gentle stream changes its name to the Yoshiki River when starting meandering through the Nara Park.
Kasugano Field (春日野園地) spreads on the one side of the river.
