Heijo Palace[edit]

This appears to be a personal itinerary, so I'm not sure how it could be adjusted, but if this is a real World Heritage Tour, I would think one would actually need to visit each of the sites. The Heijo Palace is only mentioned as being passed by on the train. Admittedly, it is not the most interesting of the sites, but if it's a true World Heritage Tour, none of the sites should be passed up, in my opinion... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by ChubbyWimbus (talkcontribs)

No, you are definitely allowed to make additions to the itinerary. You should take into account what you've just said, though — add the option of visiting Heijo Palace and identify how it can be done, but note that it is not the most interesting of the sites.

I added the information, although the very specific train schedule is now wrong. Did the original writer actually see all of these sites in only three days? I have been to Yoshino, and that alone is a day trip. I suspect Yoshino, Ominesan, and the Asuka area would require a day each to visit, especially with the infrequent buses found in Nara Prefecture outside of the capital.

Asuka is not currently a World Heritage Site, so I've removed the information about it: The next destination is Asuka. The trains from Yoshino station depart at X:08 and X:38 every hour between 9 and 21 and arrive at Asuka station(13 stops from Yoshino, 2 stops for Kashihara Jingu Mae) or Kashihara Jingu Mae station in 1 hour.

Main article Asuka, Fujiwara

Asuka is a small village with the archaeological sites of Japan's Ancient Capitals before the permanent capital was established in Nara in 710. Nara prefecture government expects it to be inscribed into world heritage list in around 2012. Get off the train and consult at the tourist information at Asuka station. The 3 day pass is also valid for Nara Kotsu Bus service in Asuka. Asuka Official Website ChubbyWimbus 03:05, 12 August 2011 (EDT)
