  • Who made what kind of purpose in what situations is all the mystery. What a damn Street. This age of megaliths some feel more broad-minded by allegorical overtones. Yamato period did not present national mahoroba, Kyoto and Nara, where National Center was certainly.

  • Carved sculpture resembling a turtle giant granite 3.6 meters in length, 2.1 m wide and 1.8 meters in height that is called by this name. From the humorous face has become symbol of Asuka village tourism. There are people called kameishi, the triangle is the face and eye popping on and rather captures features of the frog. Promising theories from the top in natural stone processing performed only at the bottom, at the top under the terms of the current is actually down reverse that was served in the Nara national cultural properties Research Institute report, there has not been.

  • Especially without a fence, usually located on the roadside. It is one of the megalithic monuments of Asuka. Let's look at first of all, when you come to Asuka.

  • 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.
  • Historic rock is the only guide book and also not very well has not developed into a tourist attraction, did not learn and discover. It is best to stop at one end of the hiking and cycling, to take pictures.

  • 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.
