Descripción

Set off from Kyoto and explore Nara and its must-see landmarks!

Located in the Kansai region, Nara was Imperial Japan's first permanent capital and remained so between 710 and 784. It has a rich cultural heritage, and its temples and shrines are among the oldest in Japan. Nara is also famous for the many deer that roam freely around the city.

You'll meet your guide at Kyoto station, and then hop on a coach to Nara. The first stop is at the Todaiji Buddhist temple. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this temple is one of the largest wooden structures in the world and is home to a grandiose bronze Buddha statue.

After visiting the temple, you'll stroll through the Nara Park, where you can admire its famous tame deer.

The excursion ends with a visit to the grounds of the Kasuga Taisha, Nara's most important Shinto shrine. Another UNESCO World Heritage Site, it's famous for having hundreds of bronze and stone lanterns.

Once the tour ends you'll be driven back to Kyoto station.
