Nara is home to some truly unique features, and we don’t just mean temples and shrines. Local street food is unique because it caters to the tame deer that wander around Nara Park. Be wary, though - they’ll do anything for a bite! Your host will lead you to the city’s numerous cultural hotspots, ranging from ancient temples to one very big Buddha, giving you the inside scoop on centuries of Japanese history. Peckish? You might find yourself slurping on the unique taste of spicy Tenri Ramen, or sampling chagayu, a regional rice and tea porridge. If it’s souvenirs you’re after, pop in at Higashimuku Shopping District before heading back to the station. It’s chock full of curios and trinkets, and your host will be on hand to haggle!
Hop on a train with your local host and head straight for the culture-rich ancient capital of Nara, where thousands of years of civilization have shaped a unique and visually stunning setting. Buddhist artwork peppers the architecture of the city, culminating in incredible temples, shrines, and relics, like the Todai-ji, Kasuga Shrine and Horyu-ji, three spiritual centers with immense cultural significance. In all, only eight such locations have been preserved, making Nara a unique window into Japan’s tumultuous and vivid past. With its leafy avenues and famous tame deer, Nara is a true sight to behold, and your host will ensure you enjoy the finest sights, tastes and lessons the city has to offer.
