Nara 6kannon ~ Asuka · Yoshino · Tonomine ~ A healing trip in Nara<Asuka/2>【One-day trip】

Feel the wind of ancient Asuka through cycling
The ideal itinerary for anyone who wants to explore the Asuka area on two wheels. Bicycles are easily rented from around the station area, and Asuka is relatively flat, so cycling to the various sightseeing spots is a breeze. The exception here is Okadera Temple, which is perched on a hill - the climb up is going to be kind of steep. Just remind yourself that there’s dessert waiting for you at Coccolo Café.
