IKOMA

Off the beaten track, but conveniently located close to the well-known stomping grounds of Nara and Osaka, Ikoma (Nara Prefecture) is a wonderful destination for a one or two-day trip. Particularly recommended for hikers, the hills offer plenty of exercise, and tucked into the countryside are charming temples, each with their own unique features. Hozanji, halfway up Mount Ikoma, is worth seeing for even the most temple-weary traveller.
