Event Details

🍁📜Autumn Leaves: World’s ONLY 13 story wooden pagoda Bicycle Trip/談山神社紅葉サイクリング📜🍁



The only 13-story wooden pagoda existing in the world! An amazing shrine to visit during autumn leaves 😉
Tanzan Shrine is a Shinto shrine located on the mountain in Sakurai, Nara prefecture.

Now is the season of un-burning fire (紅葉 – koyo). Get surrounded by it among historic 13-story pagodas and incredible mountain scenery.

Tanzan Shrine can trace its history back to the 7th century. It was built to honor and commemorate a 645 coup d’etat that saw a military dictatorship toppled and the imperial family restored to power. It is home to a unique and historic 13-story pagoda and a number of other structures. The grounds of Tanzan Shrine are lined with a great number of Japanese maples and other deciduous trees, and these combined with the glorious mountain scenery of Tonomine Pass make this one of the most spectacular places to enjoy the autumn colors.

In addition to Tanzan Shrine we will also be seeing the rustic and beautiful terraced rice paddies of upper-Asuka, and the phallic and yonic fertility stones of Asuka Ni-imasu Fertility Shrine.

This will be a fun and beautiful excursion but a decent level of fitness is required. We will rent electrically assisted bicycles in Asuka and ride them to Tanzan Shrine at the top of Tonomine Pass. The last 2.5km~3km of this ~5km ride is uphill.



20~25 people, all guests must be fit enough to ride a bicycle a distance of at least 14km over rolling terrain, walk up and down hill and across uneven and potentially slippery terrain. Good walking shoes or hiking boots are necessary. No high heels!
