  • Went with a group tour spot maniac. Rice's narrow streets surrounded by rice paddies and near the House suddenly appears mysterious megaliths. Asuka mountains placed there looked at textbooks and materials, and the image was so anticlimactic it was and at the same time, has given us even closer. I would also try looking at just what do not know even the reason for the existence of valuable as history buffs not too, but as an experience that can be seen is good?. I think you can take only kameishi cleanly taking ordinary pictures and well behind the picture of them together would be on the ground near raw is, you hit the shutter. From in front of the vending machines located beside you can shoot pictures from the front.

  • 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.
  • 龜石是橘寺嚮西600米路旁的一塊大花崗岩石。 花崗岩的形狀就像烏龜蹲在地上一樣,因此被人稱之爲“帶來平安的龜石”龜石的頭部面嚮西南方, 西方是奈良盆地。傳說這只石龜可以保佑奈良不受災害。旁邊有誠實商店,販賣明日鄉村的土產蔬菜水果等等
  • Shop Grandma very smelly countryside which is good. Asuka village is recommended for when not crowded. I bike there is very different. Tend to slope when renting a bike is a little high, but the electric bicycle is recommended.

  • Asuka station and bus routes between Kashihara-Jingu-Mae Station (red turtle) runs 1 hour one is truly alone this kameishi 1 hour does not have buy a meal in near the seven eleven-bound bus and return to explore that recommend the. Detailed timetable for each bus stop red turtle comes with a bus a day to buy tickets. Rock geeks.

  • Form is indeed a strange charm, and not visible to non-turtle. From the main road into one, no parking.
