Visite Guidée d'un Jour en Montagne Japonaise : Ikoma, Osaka

Nara
8 hours

Quand un touriste visite le Kansai, il favorise les villes importantes comme Osaka ou Kyoto. Au milieu du Kansai, le mont Ikoma n’est malheureusement pas très connu. C’est un coin paisible à 20 minutes de train d’Osaka et vaut le coup de s’y arrêter au moins un jour. Je suis guide-interprète certifié du département de Nara. Allons découvrir cette montagne dans ce circuit. Vous pouvez vous attendre à de la nature, à de l’urbanisme plutôt rétro, de l’histoire... et à de l’attraction !
