Ōmiwa and Tanzan Shrine and Asuka Rice Terraces

I visited Nara again, and went to a couple of Shinto shrines: Ōmiwa Shrine and Tanzan Shrine. On the way, we passed by the mountains around Asuka village and its beautiful rice terraces (or 棚田 tanada).

Edit note: I’ve opted for less contrast in my recent photos like in this album. I believe it brings out more details. Anyway, hope you like the photos.
