Relax and let us whisk you from Kyoto to Nara, where Todaiji Temple awaits. Home to the world’s largest wooden building. Todaiji also houses Japan’s largest bronze Buddha. Constructed in 752, this statue of the Cosmic Buddha stands an impressive 14.84 meters tall! Nara Park is located just outside the temple, and is the perfect spot to soak in the beauty of the city and mingle with the famous locals, the Nara deer! In the Shinto religion deer are considered messengers of the gods, so the deer of Nara are considered special. We will also stop at Kasuga Taisha Shrine, a World Heritage Site known for the thousands of lanterns that decorate the shrine grounds.
