  • 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.
