Enjoy the charm of Nara with a private guide


Let's visit Japan's first permanent capital which was established in 710.

Todai-ji Temple is known for its "Daibutsu-san, " or Great Buddha. It is a representative temple in Nara, with an imposing appearance of the largest wooden structure in the world.

The Kofuku-ji Temple was prospered as a forerunner of "Buddhism for aristocrats" in the Nara period (710-794). In the vast precincts, there are the Chukon-do Hall, the Tokon-do Hall, the Hokuen-do Hall, the Nan'en-do Hall, the Five-storied Pagoda, the Three-storied Pagoda, and more! The temple's Treasure House is one of the highlights. It houses National Treasures and Important Cultural Properties including various artworks (statues, paintings and craft works), plus historical documents and books.

Kasuga Taisha shrine lies in a primeval forest. The brilliant vermilion edifices are beautifully contrasted with their surrounding greenery.

Let's visit and enjoy must-see 4 sites!
