Description

Embark on an afternoon trip from Kyoto to the neighboring city of Nara, where you explore a temple that contains Japan's largest Buddha. Tame deer greet you on the verdant grounds of a city center park, and you get a glimpse of historic treasures at Kasuga Grand Shrine.

After you depart from Kyoto, you first visit Todai-ji, also called the Eastern Great Temple. The gently curved eaves fill you with awe as you observe one of the world’s largest wooden buildings, which was originally 30% bigger than the majestic structure seen today. Step inside Japan's most famous temple to gaze upon the world's largest bronze statue of the Buddha Vairocana, standing at 49 feet (15 m).

You proceed to Nara Park—1,250 acres of greenery far away from the city bustle that's populated by hundreds of freely roaming deer. Find serenity as you stroll around this wildlife oasis, and perhaps pause to feed a few of these dainty woodland creatures.

Join the path that leads to Kasuga Grand Shrine, the most famous shrine in Nara. As you amble along, take note of the more than 3,000 traditional stone and bronze lanterns that line the walkway to the entrance. Return to Kyoto and reflect happily on your memorable Nara excursion.
