  • Asuka is filled with mysteries of masonry is not knowing anything more. Kameishi, monkey and demon waiting, I just said to be by ship, etc. It is just over the strange stone of fun!

  • On Sunday afternoon, went by bicycle. Note that map and overlook. And made according to the description, the other is odoroodoroshikadた. In passing, so there is a vending machine next to the rest.

  • This, my friends, is a turtle rock. It is the turtleiest and rockiest turtle rock that ever did cap the lands. There is some ancient folklore chiseled into a plaque -- but for the most part, it is just talking about how a sculptor turned a rock into a turtle. I'd recommend making a quick pit-stop at the market beside the 亀石 either before your visit so that you can refresh and prepare your mind and body for the sheer brilliance that is the turtle rock.
  • History of 400 ancient Romans. Long time ago people were crafted in such big stone surprise! It's also humor enough. * Convenient access from Jr NARA station. As good as the Heron's Nara Kotsu 2 days ticket! Bus, kashiharajingū-Mae Station and Asuka station 1 hour 1 book, growing can be achieved "site tour" is prepared, make sure the time.

  • Very unique! And even though never being stolen from the giant memorials there vulnerable to such. Old field, it was rice? So now yet instead House stands the watch silently.

  • Is known as "the turtle 🐢 stone", is this a tortoise really? and bothered watching "jiquí 🐸 frog" to be seen. Also at the finished product does not seem to. Don't carve Mason's on the way, stop in! It may represent the Feng Shui Xuan Wu if (tortoise). Some defend this stone in "the North". Show "water" If the toads? After the Tomb last lid stone? → a capstone? There is a legend "and look to the West in full flood happens". First North, then facing East, it was facing further South, but is now facing the Southwest. It's still slightly in a clockwise direction I running seems to be. It's like counting down! Scary ~ b! 😱. Would be better Nara Prefecture was prepared soon to escape w. Appeal to visitors Asuka had a lot of weird statue. Monkey do kameishi, bog's rich variety of stones, drink 船石 and demons waiting until now.

  • So what is in the field it is masonry materials such as Tortoise, cute shops and tourist maps used design. And turtle-stone products is one thing.
