Nara 6kannon ~ Asuka · Yoshino · Tonomine ~ A healing trip in Nara<Asuka/1> 【One-day trip】

Enjoy Asuka's Kannon and special products
This day trip gives you the highlights of the Sakurai and Asuka areas, and is particularly recommended for those who want to visit some otherwise relatively inaccessible mountain shrines and temples. An early start will have you catching Shorinji Temple in good light, and time for a leisurely mid-morning cuppa overlooking Tanzan Shrine. Post-lunch, take some time to contemplate life in the sun on the fields near the tumulus. Don’t forget to pick up some souvenirs from the shop nearby.
