The Secret Shrine of Omiwa

The Secret Shrine of Omiwa

Explore the sacred Omiwa Shrine in Nara, that does not have any idol or deity inside but is dedicated to the mountain, Mount Miwa that it sits on. This is an ‘off-the-beaten-path kind of tour and it takes 10 hours to complete. We will also enjoy Sake tasting and an authentic Japanese SWIMMING SOMEN noodle lunch.

  • We will head to Sakurai Station where we will catch a cab to the ‘Secret of Nara’, where the first Emperor of Japan (660 BC) reigned. We will go where Japan all started; its History, its Shintoism, Buddhism and Silk Road Trade Point.
  • We will visit three specific Forest Shrines that began the history of Japan. Stunning! After this, we will have a ‘Swimming Somen Noodle Lunch’ and a Nara Sake Tasting.

Kind regards
