Kasuga Grand Shrine Reviews
1) 在JR奈良站或近鐵奈良站均有巴士直達神社，非常方便； 2) 春日大社屬官幣大社，被列為世界文化遺產； 3) 春日大社主要由三部分組成：大宮、若宮和水谷九社，其中大宮的御本殿為國寶，非常漂亮，不容錯過； 4) 若宮坐落在叢林中，非常幽靜。 more »1) There are buses directly at the shrine at JR Nara Station or near Nara Station, which is very convenient; 2) Spring Day Social Council, listed as the world's cultural community; 3) Spring Day Club is mainly composed of three parts: Otsuka, Ruoyu and Miu Valley Nine Society, of which the Imperial Palace of Otsuka is a national, very beautiful, not to be allowed to live in the forest; Very claustrophobic.
広大な駐車場に観光バスが満杯！殆どは日本語で表示してないツアー名がガラス越しに見える、酷いもんですねぇ・・・来てほしくありませんねぇ・・・駐車場から本殿までの長い参道を歩いている間も日本語は殆ど聞かれなかったですねぇ・・・折角、国同士で戦後最悪の関係になっているのに、何で日本に観光に来るの？来なくてもいいよ。いや、来てほしくないよ、それで困るような店や商売人は日ごろからリスク管理が出来ていないだけ... more »The vast parking lot is full of tourist buses! Most of the tour names that are not displayed in Japanese look through the glass, it's terrible... i don't want to come... i didn't want to hear much Japanese while walking on the long approach from the parking lot to the main shrine. Even if the country is the worst relationship after the war, why come to Japan for sightseeing? You don't have to come. No, I don't want you to come, so the troubled shops and businesspeople are just businessmen who don't manage risk on a daily basis. From the bottom of my heart, I don't want you to come, it's extremely annoying, i'm not buying or not? It became a visit of a terrible atmosphere though it went with peace of mind. I won't go to this sightseeing spot anymore until I can confirm that the Japanese are visiting the subject. With this, it is as good as there is no profit.
