  • 1) There are buses directly at the shrine at JR Nara Station or near Nara Station, which is very convenient; 2) Spring Day Social Council, listed as the world's cultural community; 3) Spring Day Club is mainly composed of three parts: Otsuka, Ruoyu and Miu Valley Nine Society, of which the Imperial Palace of Otsuka is a national, very beautiful, not to be allowed to live in the forest; Very claustrophobic.

  • The vast parking lot is full of tourist buses! Most of the tour names that are not displayed in Japanese look through the glass, it's terrible... i don't want to come... i didn't want to hear much Japanese while walking on the long approach from the parking lot to the main shrine. Even if the country is the worst relationship after the war, why come to Japan for sightseeing? You don't have to come. No, I don't want you to come, so the troubled shops and businesspeople are just businessmen who don't manage risk on a daily basis. From the bottom of my heart, I don't want you to come, it's extremely annoying, i'm not buying or not? It became a visit of a terrible atmosphere though it went with peace of mind. I won't go to this sightseeing spot anymore until I can confirm that the Japanese are visiting the subject. With this, it is as good as there is no profit.
