Experience

Located less than one hour from Kyoto and Osaka, Nara is a small city welcoming visitor in a traditional environment.

Wild shika deers live in its immense park and often venture in the city’s streets and among its fabulous temples. A full day is enough to have a good grasp of Nara. The city’s attractions are gathered in the same area and can be discovered at a leisurely pace, however, keep in mind that they close early at night so make sure to arrive early in the morning!

Our Certified Tour Guides in Nara

The round trip transportation time from Kyoto or Osaka to Nara (about 45 minutes each way) is included in the total length of the tour. The guide will use the transportation time to answer your questions, give insights on Japan, and especially on Nara.

Most of touristic attractions are found within the large Nara Park, which is a remarkable place as well. The famous Todai-ji Temple and its giant Buddha statue are a must-see. Original landscapes are to be discovered when slightly moving away from the park.
