"Noma Keyaki" in Nose

Nose (能勢町 Nose-chō?) (Japanese pronunciation: [nose]) is a town situated in Toyono District, Osaka Prefecture, Japan.

As of 2009, the town has an estimated population of 11,839 and a density of 120 persons per km². The total area is 98.68 km².

Nose is noted for the "Noma Keyaki", a 1,000-year old Keyaki tree, 25 m tall, 11.95 m trunk circumference.[1]

In 1837, there was an important peasant revolt in Nose, in the context of the Tenpō famine (1833-1839), some months after Ōshio Heihachirō’s riot.[2]
