(1) Explore the oldest but active Omiwa jinja shrine in Yamato region. (2) Learn about the history of Japan. (3) Experience and learn about the spiritual traditions of Shinto (the difference between Buddhism) (4) Drink some holy spring water of Mt. Miwa. (5) See the grand view of Yamato region with oldest tomb mound of the shaman queen, Himiko. (6) Have some local sake tasting or enjoy a sake ice cream. - Optional: the local specialty noodle "soumen" for lunch at my favorite restaurant. (Morning tour only!) We will take a JR local train to get to Ohmiwa jinja shrine located in Yamato region (Sakurai city). The sacred Mt. Miwa has been the target of worship from ancient times, and I grew up seeing this holy mountain. Recently, this special site is increasingly attracting people from all over Japan as a power spot. I will guide you around the shrine, and be a good storyteller on the history, legend, and mythology related to the area as well as spiritual customs of Japan. Shinto belief is deeply rooted to the very universal and has deep wisdom on harmony and balance between human and nature. After the tour, I hope you will have a much deeper understanding of Japan in general. If you've had a special interest and affinity towards Japan for a long time, then I think you will find a good reason during the tour.
Hello! I am Akiko. I grew up in the Yamato region in Nara, the birthplace of Japan as a nation and home of Japanese spirituality. I’m living in Nara city as a government-licensed tour guide since 2009. So far, I've guided many foreign tourists (both first visitors and repeaters) who had deep, strong interests in Japan. Through my personal experiences, I’m very much aware of the true value of the spiritual heritage of Japan, which is rarely explained to the tourists in English. I love history, meeting new people and taking them to my favorite sites in the off-the-beaten-path. If you are a bit tired of the too crowded touristy area, why don't you visit the Yamato region with me, a little bit south of Nara city? <I also host a longer (6 hours) tour, too. > Explore spiritual power spots in Nara https://www.airbnb.jp/experienc

It takes about 30 minutes by train from JR Nara to get to Ohmiwa Shrine, the first ranking shrine in Yamato region. We get off at a station with no staff. From a grand torii gate, you can feel the special sacred atmosphere. I often come back here to find inner peace, connection with something Great. This place is full of history and legends from the time of mythology. A recently made local guide book even proudly states, "Unknown origin".
