What To Expect

Providing travelers with the perfect excursion from the big city, the beautiful city of Nara (once Japan's capital) is an ideal nature escape in all seasons. Famed for the thousands of deer that graze and roam freely in the park as well as the significant temples dating from the eighth century. Once inside the park you'll visit two UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Todai-ji Temple is an iconic symbol of the Nara Period and one of the world's largest wooden structures. The huge 15-meter bronze Great Buddha is truly a sight to behold. Kasuga Taisha Shrine, built in 768 AD, is famed for its stone and bronze lanterns. Making your way to the shrine, you'll encounter a number of deer, thought to be the shrine messengers. Eternally hungry, you can purchase food to feed the deer who will thank you with their characteristic nodding!

    Great experience. Our tour guide, Saiko (sounds like 'psycho' ) is funny. You'll learn about the rich culture of Nara. Feeding the deers is quite an experience. The trip is fast-paced, I wish there would be more time spent on each part of the tour and buy some souvenirs, but overall experience is worth coming back.

    The visits were interesting and the tour guide was not only knowledgeable in the history of the sites, but he also paced the tour well to make sure we get enough satisfaction at each site. His dialogue was clear and he took good care of us.

    The trip from Osaka to Nara via Kyoto was a bit unexpected and cumbersome. We had a fun time on the bus ride from Kyoto. The guide was knowledgeable and very entertaining.
