Nara One-Day Tour (Todaiji Temple, Kofukuji Temple, Nara Town)


Nara was the capital of Japan in the 8th century, preceding Kyoto (Heian-kyo), and was called Heijo-kyo. The city was modeled after Chang'an in China's Tang Dynasty and was built through large-scale urban planning.
The ancient capital is now an area where deer are free to roam, and we will visit Todaiji Temple, Kasuga Taisha Shrine, and Kofukuji Temple in the area.


【Itinerary】JR Kyoto or Osaka Station → JR Nara Station or Kintetsu Nara Station → JR Kyoto or Osaka Station

(1) Todaiji Temple: In the 8th century, Emperor Karl the Great was supported by the Roman Church, while in Japan, Emperor Shomu promoted the rule of the whole country with the help of Buddhism. He placed national temples throughout Japan and built Todai-ji Temple at the top of them. He also erected a 15-meter-high bronze statue of the Great Buddha at Todaiji Temple. The opening ceremony was attended by over 10,000 people and was said to have been the largest ceremony of its kind in East Asia. Todaiji Temple is also home to many other national treasures, including the Nandaimon Gate and the Daibutsuden Hall.

(2) Kasuga Taisha Shrine: With a history of approximately 1,300 years, this shrine is one of the World Heritage sites. It has a vast site that includes the primeval forest of Kasuga Mountain, where 1,200 deer, cherished as messengers of the gods, walk freely. The National Treasure Hall houses and displays approximately 3,000 national treasures and important cultural properties, including sacred treasures and armor and swords dedicated by aristocrats and warriors.

(3) Kofukuji Temple: This temple is an integral part of Kasuga Taisha Shrine. In addition to the five-story pagoda, the National Treasure Hall is a particular highlight, with 18 national treasures of Buddhist sculptures, the largest collection of such treasures in Japan for a temple. The Ashura statue, with its boyishly handsome face, is particularly famous, but visitors can also see a variety of other masterpieces of sculpture, such as the Happushu and the Tentoji.
