    Visitors to this agricultural park can spend the whole day here while enjoying nature in the seasonal ingredient hunts, the barbeque area, restaurant experience classes and athletics, and so much more. The fruit and vegetables cultivated in Shigisan Nodoka Mura are also a welcome sight, as they are produced using safe and reassuring pesticide-reduced cultivation, which is approved by Eco Farmers. The Tenku Tamago-kake Gohan, which uses fresh eggs collected from free-range chickens, is also very popular. The park is located approximately 30 minutes by car from the Daini Hanna Toll Road’s Ichibu Interchange.

Nara Main Areas


With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of “traditional Japan.” The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture’s treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains’ Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
