Getting There

法隆寺-世界最古の現存する木造建築物 法隆寺にはは非常に広い境内があります。境内には五重塔をはじめとする世界最古の木造建築物が並んでいます。日本最古の歴史書である日本書紀によると、法隆寺は670年に全焼しましたが、711年までに再建されたことがわかっています。 法隆寺は飛鳥時代からその当時の景観をとどめており、1993年に日本初のユネスコ世界文化遺産に登録されました。 JR大和小泉駅を出発すると、狭い通りを抜けて最初の目的地である小泉神社に到着します。ルートを進むと、松尾寺のある松尾山へと続きます。その後、奈良の代表的な寺院の一つである法隆寺へと下りていきましょう。壮大な歴史的建造物の中で、古代飛鳥の雰囲気を肌で感じることができます。 最後に、最終目的地であるJR法隆寺駅に向かいます。大和の町とのお別れの時間です。

There are combination stores along the way,and the occasional small cafe,but,to be on the safe-side,stock-up before you arrive.If you are only visiting Horyu-ji Temple,there are plenty of eateries in the area. Any-time of year is a good time to visit Japan.

Access to the area is best by Japan Rail. Yamatokoizumi and Horyuji Stations are on the J.R. Yamatoke Line,which runs from Osaka to Nara. From Kyoto, you take the J.R.Nara Line to Nara and change there. If you are in Nara and want to visit the Horyu-ji Temple, there is a special bus that departs from J.R.Nara and Kintetsu Nara Stations. If you want to commence your tour from Masuo-dera Temple,there is a bus that runs from the J.R.Yamatokoizumi Station to the complex.

Really pleasant hike (actually more of a walk) through town, up to some temples in the hills then back down to town and more interesting temples/landmarks.
