What To Expect

Nara is very near Kyoto, but it's not the only reason why it should be in your travel itinerary. This small city boasts no less than 8 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. It's a picturesque city and second to Kyoto when it comes to the richness and beauty of its gardens, shrines, and temples. In this tour, you'll visit the Todaiji Temple, one of Japan's most famous and historically significant temples. Then pass through the Nara Park also known as Deer Park, which showcases the most impressive displays of nature. See 1,000+ tame deer wandering freely, and if you wish to feed the deer with special deer food, they will gladly eat from your hand. The last stop of the tour is the Kofukuji Temple. This temple was founded in Kyoto in AD 669 and relocated in Nara in AD 710. This tour is ideal for friends and family—including the kids!

    Hiro, tour guide was excellent, felt it was more personalized tour catering to our requests. The todaiji temple tour was very informative, learned more about Buddhism here. The train ride was not that bad after all.
