  • Asuka Temple was included in our coach trip from Nara, otherwise, we would probably never have heard of it. Site of the oldest Buddhist temple in Japan, founded at the end of the 6th Century, it house...  more »
  • Now is the Temple of agui. We recommend parking there, kashiharajingū-Mae Station go rent a bike. You can feel the wind of which to comprehend the glory of bygone days. According to the description of the person in front of a Buddha, and at that time was worth Temple of scale? More old school art textbooks at Horyu-ji Temple Shaka triad of Buddha and the same face seems to have been the original.

  • Probably the oldest temple in Japan in ancient South Nara in Asuka. Well worth the visit for the history.
  • Asuka-dera is the oldest Buddhist temple in Japan, where the oldest Buddha in Japan lives. It is very much off-the-beaten-path -- visit with a bicycle and pay homage to the ancientness of the site. For 400 or 500 yen a head, you can enter the main hall, where a monk (Japanese only!) will give you the history and disambiguation of the temple. It has been built and rebuilt many times throughout its ancient, sprawling history because it has been burnt to the ground (sometimes by crusade and sometimes by accident).
  • One of the oldest buddhist temple in Japan
  • a different style of Buddha in here
  • If you dare to name this place was freezing even though I travel white rice is Asuka. Most of the great Buddha of Asuka for the Conservatives, but the color is evident. Now is not the same as at the time of the inspectors don't care a cornerstone in the yard. Back door on the side of the head of the cow Noi mudeomdo Luca. Great interesting and meaningful. Gul also expressed a warm welcoming contact guide is impressive. Worth staying carefully enough.
