HAJIMARI 01The beginning of Japan

Boasting over 1400 years of history with Japan's first capital, Asuka Palace, and first urban planning project, Fujiwara Palace, the historical landscape of the area has remained unchanged and provides an aura of times gone by.
These lands are the birthplace of Japan as we know it, its spiritual origin.
