  • Exorcism is one of the best in the prefecture. In Japan, is the largest and oldest statues with Temple. A huge statue of nyoirin Kannon is a compound sentence. With Kobo-Daishi is handed down. Built over 1,300 years old temple, national treasure contains also a number of important cultural properties. Is a prominent Temple Dragon lid pond legend before the temple, widely, has published information on the Internet. Distance is less, but is quite a steep hill from the parking lot up the Hill.

  • I wanted to watch the statues up, Japan's oldest (nyoirin Kannon, designated important cultural properties, height:4.85m), visited. Here of one of the 3 great Buddha in Japan seems [the other two, Todai-ji Temple of Nara Buddha (statue) and NARA's hasedera Temple, juichimen kanzeon bosatsu (wooden)]. NARA; here feel the texture is about 5 m and powerful, whereas height:1.6m about life-size statue of Devas had appreciated the statues at the four heavenly kings statue is enshrined in Todai-ji Temple and kaidan'in Temple (designated, national treasure). It is recommended that stretched the legs until Masayuki Oku hospital about Maitreya, at the back of caves in the ashes in the cave I learned for the first time, we have a unique atmosphere, so if you can afford the time for about 20 minutes. Also views on main and Masayuki Oku hospital cave walk across the triple treasure Tower.

  • A little walk from the parking lot. Concessions are the sights and vistas, spinning slowly around. Impression is often moved from Asuka village tourism or foreign tourists from Europe and America, surprisingly. Saigoku 33 pilgrimage by Mairi. The shogunate.

  • 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.
  • Nyoirin Kannon statue is the largest statues. Grounds and planted a lot of flowers, very clean. Temple in Asuka 突keru Bell-part 2.
