19.Asuka
Asuka is a small region in Nara Prefecture (about 25 kilometers south of Nara City) which had a pivotal role in Japanese history. Lending its name to the Asuka Period (538-710), the Asuka region was the site of Japan's first capitals, from where the early Japanese national character emerged. A few monuments of that period remain, but the area is now mostly fields and rural villages.

Nara was the first permanent capital from 710 to 784. Before those cities there was Asuka, where the first imperial residences were located. During the period, there was much influence from the Asian mainland, and Buddhism was introduced to the country via the Korean peninsula. The religion took root quickly and had an enormous spiritual and cultural effect on the country.
