Other Sightseeing Spot

A 148 meter tall hill said to be the place where Soga no Emishi and his son, Soga no Iruka, had a residence in the Asuka period. The hill offers a sweeping view of Asuka and on clear days you can even see the Three Mountains of Yamato -Mt. Amanokagu, Mt. Miminashi, and Mt. Unebi. In spring, the cherry trees on the hill come into beautiful bloom.

          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.
