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!

    Interesting tour of several sites in Nara. Especially enjoyed seeing the tame deer.
  • AHats 6 Sep 2015
    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.

    請認真看待這個訊息。 半日遊的行程在中文說明,並無明載(可是英文版有)行程是在京都集合出發,行經京都、再到奈良約2.5小時的行程。 因為旅店在大版難波區,所以等於花了1.5小時在集合行程(大阪-京都),希望中文行程說明,可以載明行程,以免誤會。

    나라에서는 사슴만 보는 줄 알았는데, 이런 알찬 투어도 있었네요. 호텔 픽업도 해주니 늦잠자고서 시작하기 좋은 투어였어요ㅋㅋㅋ
