Koshin-do庚申堂

Temple

You’ll find this small hall in the center of Naramachi with a standing statue of Shomen (blue-faced guardian deity), known as Koshin, enshrined. The red monkeys suspended from the eaves of houses in Naramachi are modeled after the servants of Koshin and are believed to act as sacrificial charms that guard against natural disasters and sickness.

          Nara Main Areas

          around-area-map

          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.
