Nara was the Imperial capital of Japan between 710 and 784. The city has many places of historical and artistic interest including the Nara Palace site, or the Heijyokyu remains, Yakushi-ji Temple, Toshodai-ji Temple and Saidai-ji Temple.
You can see the newly reconstructed Daikokuden and Suzaku gate, or vermillion bird gate on the Nara Palace site which has a size of about one square kilometer. The Daikokuden was finally completed after 9 years in 2010 as a milestone of its 1,300th anniversary. On the southern half of the Nara Palace site, there is the "TOIN" or the East Palace Garden that Empress Shotoku built.
Yakushi-ji Temple is the headquarters of the Hosso sect of Buddhism. This temple's main object of worship is the Yakushi Nyorai, or the Buddha of Medicine, as can be seen in the name of the temple, "Yaku" meaning medicine. The temple has two three-storied pagoda. The East Pagoda, which is the third oldest pagoda in Japan, is designated as a National Treasure. The East Pagoda is under repair and is supposed to be open to the public in 2019.
Toshodai-ji Temple is the headquarters of the Ritsu sect of Buddhism. The founder of the temple was Ganjin, who established the temple in 759.
Saidai-ji, literally West Big Temple, is named the opposite of Todai-ji, or literally East Big Temple. In "Shiijin-soo", it is said that 4 sacred animals protect the 4 directions, for example, the temple is positioned so that the black turtle protects it from the north.
Nara is one of the few cities that didn't suffer air-raids during World War Ⅱ. Therefore its quiet and historical atmosphere hasn't changed for many centuries till today
