It was a fine day and we grabbed our jackets for anticipation of the cold wind in that remote area of Nara Prefecture. The family was set to go after the “Ge Ge no Kitaro and One piece episode”. It was Sunday and off we go for intended sightseeing and trek to the mountain of Muro where Japan’s tiniest five-story pagoda sits.
It was a short drive from Mie and more near when taking Kusoku Doro (Highway) It was an enjoyable walk with my two boys, as usual. And all had been recorded for you guys. So we are not just us, you are there with us through this post.
Located at a remote area of Muro, Nara Prefecture. The story is in the video so those don’t like videos much, then please enjoy reading instead..
MUROUJI TEMPLE 室生寺
This temple is the first temple who accepts women worshippers since the Kamakura Period (1185-1333) thus named woman’s Koyasan. A temple that is very welcoming of monks of different denominations.
The Koyasan in Wakayama is the end of the pilgrimage route in Kumano Kudo that is considered and preserved also as a World Heritage.
WHAT TO SEE
The dense forest and the Eleven-Faced statue of Kannon and Shaka Norai
The beauty of the forest itself.
A day of being in awe of the view of the amazing pagoda and the surrounding ancient trees (they are huge, believe me!) of the forest.
Perfect for photography.
Just like we do, your family will surely enjoy this trip.
