Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Todai-ji Temple, 406-1 Zoshicho, Nara 630-8211 Nara Prefecture

This ancient temple is renowned as the largest wooden building in the world. Upon entering the corridor, you will be surprised at the scale of this temple. After cleansing our hands and mouth at a purifying trough, let's face the huge Buddha with his merciful gaze.


Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Kasuga Grand Shrine, 160 Kasuganocho, Nara 630-8212 Nara Prefecture

This is a historical shrine built around 1 300 years ago that holds about 1,000 branch shrines all over Japan. There are more than 3,000 lanterns in its precincts, which are the largest in Japan. The contrast of vermillion and green of the buildings, and the bronze and gold of the hanging lanterns harmonizes beautifully with the blue sky. Let’s ask the deity enshrined here for the safety of your travel.


Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Naramachi, Nara Nara Prefecture

Naramachi is an area where traditional houses have been kept well preserved for over 150 years. We will not only look at them from the outside, but get a feeling and learn about the traditional Japanese lifestyle by entering one of those houses. In recent years, many young people have remodeled old houses to open stores and sell fashionable accessories. Let's enjoy the fascinating fusion of old and new.
