Shigisan Senjuin Temple信貴山大本山 千手院
This venerable sub-temple, the oldest in the Mt. Shigi area, was founded in the late Heian period. The temple's Gomado (Homa ritual hall), built by the famed Buddhist priest Myoren Shonin, is where the temple conducts its bishamon goma (Vaisravana homa) prayer rituals. Its Zenigamedo (Baby Turtle Hall) enshrines Zenigame Zenshin, a deity said to grant luck with money and other matters. The Kannon-do (Kannon Hall), which enshrines the temple's Juichimen (11-headed) Kannon statue said to answer prayers for conception and easy childbirth, is one of the temple's highlights.

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 âtraditional Japan.â 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.
