  • Saigoku 33 places in the surroundings! You could hit a good-luck charm Bell. It was not a quick response is unrelated to the temple towards the parking lot and get some money too good feelings. And now stands at the door, stop the car whether or not?

The dead to 33 sacred sites-prominence of goddess of mercy to you and prayers have a lot of good tour towards the goal, so is recommended. Ideal Temple is beautiful and feels good. There are a lot of places, so is recommended.

  • In the Asuka village is idyllic. Without a Sutra that was visited in the tour group, came the main worship.

  • Lovely temple hidden in old, ancient Nara.
  • Oka-dera was my pinnacle of temple exploration in Japan. The mountain temple was laced in bright color and had a reverent heartbeat. Snow capped the tombstones and statues within. In the middle of my visit, a crowd of devout Asukamura people climbed to the main hall and chanted. It, along with the deep bells, moved my heart. The temple itself is masterfully crafted -- it took 30 years to complete. If you visit, be sure to travel deep into the mountainside to see the smallest secrets.
  • Went on a bicycle is too tight the last Hill and climb up there was. Bike racks on the way? Like the place, went up on foot. Worship was easy since the temple itself is very good, relatively compact bunches.

  • Temple Gate parking lot temples and little to do. Narrow one exit to the temple which has free parking and go up the road. Mini-cars are pretty shrimp birimasu. In the small caves in the shrine at the Buddha we have.
