  • Long shrine lanterns lined up on both sides and you will see some of the Kasuga Taisha Shrine. Many Japanese were surprised.

  • You need to go by car to the parking in front of Todai-ji Temple while going East. Along the way, going in the forest road, so "Kasuga-Taisha Shrine here? "And so we were in a vehicle make sure the green area has parking.

  • A shrine in the Daris of Nara in the spring, built in 710 years; by the spring of this year, Daris has been built for 1250 years. Daris is the president of the Shinto shrine in Japan, and is included in the World Cultural Heritage by the Federation Council of Nations. From the NARA station to the spring, Daris will pass through Nara Park; about 30 minutes. ; A lot of deer will be seen along the way; these deer are very spiritual, walking in the Daris of the spring, with a stone-light cage on the road, which is quiet silence beautiful, the atmosphere of the atmosphere; and I fully feel the flavor of Japan.
