It is said that the town's name, IKARUGA, originates from the bird name,
IKARU that once flocked together here.
The Horyuji i Center offers information on "Rekishi Kaido" ( The Historic Road - a tour route which takes us through Japanese history from Ise, Asuka, Nara, Osaka and finally to Kobe). Visitors can feel the richness of Japanese history and culture. The Center was also built to provide a place where visitors may enjoy a rest.
