Enjoy One-Day Tour of Nara, which was the ancient capital of Japan and flourished as a center of culture. We start for Todaiji Temple housing massive Daibutsu Great Buddha, then visit Kasuga Shrine to learn about indigenous religion Shintoism. In the afternoon we go to Kohfukuji Temple for five-story pagoda and for the temple’s museum exhibiting national treasures. End the day playing with friendly and tamed deer in Nara Park. I am flexible to customize my tour based on your request.
