  • Hoki-ji Temple a world heritage site. The temple is a small temple in the village of Ikaruga, but still want to see that. Do not miss the three-storied pagoda of Japan's oldest. That is amazing even now thus remains the beautiful wooden tower. Decided to amble time because buses are considerably less, I visited. Officials from Horyu-ji Temple 20-30 minutes. Squander hours in advance if you will be using the bus if notice is required. Many temples, which then would inadvertently extended worship time.

  •  Out of 3 for sightseeing in Nara's "Ikaruga-no-Sato", Horyu-ji Gong Temple, hoki-ji Temple, suggest that is three-storied pagoda of the temple. This pagoda (national treasure), was built in the 800's original intact rice I remain alone and in the rice paddies, deeper flavor. Especially to the seniors, I would encourage.  I think life, lived long enough good. But to put the visitors took photographs on the Internet and usually from the front around the flowers Cosmos took the composition set right in the three-storied pagoda in.  That nit from us if you are a photographer, who, well, happy, you may not have, next take a look at the pinch twist and hope. Advice from the us, placing towers in the center of the composition--this is basics of photography and sketches depict should be. Composition vertically 3 and the Tower must be left from the center line to either shift the copy. The rice's tower stands in a mountain village rural houses scattered on the right side, facing the towers from the rice paddies, especially next to the "Oka village" of the houses and then take that one.  And out of the atmosphere, increases the attraction. Also by car or bus from Horyu-ji area approaches--be looking after this temple, and whenever the bad impression. Take a look at the from JR Koizumi station about 30 minutes want to walk to the West, to approach. Houses around the station from Koizumi's finally broken up, suddenly, rice I will spread rice on the front sight. Will never forget the impression when I saw the three-storied pagoda in the distance at this time,.  Rice's and follow the footpath of the rice, while more and more closer to the tower to take pictures, to stitch it. That and approaches imply that nothing similar with others is not to be put in the hands only mediocre results. This is the same as the stock investments. Than going again, to fall in love with a middle-aged man.

  • Located about 2 km North-East of Horyu-ji Temple Okamoto hoki-ji Temple is known in Japan to present the oldest three-storied pagoda and the World Heritage provided, in addition to the national treasure. Feel the weight of history said was built by Prince Shotoku during the Asuka period. Pagoda follow the country road retains the atmosphere of Ikaruga and gradually comes into view, Kamei katsuichiro in the in the "Daiwa temple rites" drew up the remains.
