This tour is 5 hour guided tour in Nara. If you plan to stay in Kyoto or Osaka, why don't you spend one day sightseeing in Nara?
Nara is the ancient capital of Japan and it is where humans and deer coexist peacefully to this day.
The heritage sites in Nara, which are even bigger in size than Kyoto's, await you.
Let's explore Nara together!!

What to Expect

Todaiji Temple, with the world's biggest wooden structure and huge Buddha statue, will blow you away.
In Kasuga Taisha Shrine, you will feel the spiritual and natural beauty of Japan.
We can enjoy the masterpiece of Buddhist sculpture, Ashura, in Kofukuji temple. The sculpture of Ashura is a Japanese national treasure, is visited by thousands of Japanese tourists every year, but is still relatively undiscovered by foreign travellers.
All these sites are in Nara Park, so deer appear everywhere!!
If you are a sake lover, we can go to experience sake tasting in a famous sake brewery!

“ Amazing tour of Kyoto! ”

We had an absolutely wonderful time in Kyoto with Keiko-san! She was so responsive to questions, changes in schedule, and anything else the group needed. All elements that make for a truly wonderful guide! She even timed our visit to Arashiyama so that we would see it illuminated at night, which meant spending a little extra time with us, then helped us get to Osaka to meet a friend (who is living there) for dinner. We also got to wander Nishiki Market at our own pace and she helped us find food that was appropriate for those of us with dietary restrictions. If you're going to Kyoto, I absolutely recommend booking your tours with Keiko!
