What To Expect

Escape the busy city and take a day to explore the historic sites and ancient temples outside Osaka on this full day guided tour. After your city departure, you’ll be welcomed by the pink cherry blossoms of Arashiyama, a traditional district famed for its stunning mountain scenery and well preserved royal court. Here, begin by taking a wander through the bamboo grove. With towering stalks of green bamboo that seem to reach into the sky, you’ll feel immersed in an otherworldly atmosphere throughout this peaceful stroll. Depending on your chosen package, enjoy a buffet or set lunch before hopping on the Randen for a picturesque tram ride to Shijo-Omiya. From there you’ll be transported to the UNESCO site of Todai-ji and get up close to its star attraction, the Daibutsu Buddha, which as one of the largest bronze figures in the world, is a hugely impressive sight to behold. All the while your guide will provide you with in depth knowledge as you explore the beautiful grounds of this ancient imperial city. End the day by relaxing in Nara Park, the home of 1000 freely roaming tame deer and with plenty of deer food available, you can have a go at feeding them yourself!

    Smooth journey but the rain was a bumper. Thankfully the deers were cooperative and still excited to get food from us despite the heavy downpour. Overall a memorable experience for my family. Definitely recommended day trip if visiting Japan Kansai area.
