Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

A history museum located in Asuka Village, Takaichi County, Nara Prefecture. The museum displays materials related to the Takamatsuzuka Tomb, which drew immediate national attention in 1972 when vividly colored murals were discovered during an excavation at the site. The museum displays life-sized replicas of stone rooms and murals found at the site and created in the same manner as the originals as well as replicas of articles found at the site such as a decorative long sword fitting, Kaiju Budo Kyo of a Chinese style (mirror decorated with marine mammals), and metal coffin fittings. A essential destination for any sightseeing visit to Asuka, the facility is visited by great numbers of tourists from both in and outside Japan.

          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.
