Overview
  • This tour is the occasion to present you a Japanese village with a glorious past. Asuka dates from Japanese protohistory. Yamato land sometimes established there its capital which were not fixed in the 6th~7th century before moving "for good" to Heijo-kyo in 710.
  • Asuka is nowadays a big village with 5620 inhabitants. Relatively close to nearby cities, farmers and townsmen willing for better living standards live together. This village is still proud of its past and shows it to us. This ancient capital place also aims to be registered as UNESCO World Heritage in 2024 as "Asuka-Fujiwara: Archaeological sites of Japan’s Ancient Capitals and Related Properties".
  • Furthermore, unlike other cities, Japanese urbanism is well respected. We can visit an old town as it was during Edo Period (1600-1868) between all the historical sites. This Edo atmosphere is also worth it.
