About this activity
Encounter the ancient and ornate temples and expansive grassy park, home to the famed Nara nodding deer, on this day trip to Nara from Osaka

Providing travelers with the perfect excursion from the big city, the beautiful city of Nara (once Japan’s capital) is an ideal nature escape in all seasons. Famed for the thousands of deer that graze and roam freely in the park as well as the significant temples dating from the eighth century. Once inside the park you’ll visit two UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Todai-ji Temple is an iconic symbol of the Nara Period and one of the world’s largest wooden structures. The huge 15-meter bronze Great Buddha is truly a sight to behold. Kasuga Taisha Shrine, built in 768 AD, is famed for its stone and bronze lanterns. Making your way to the shrine, you’ll encounter a number of deer, thought to be the shrine messengers. Eternally hungry, you can purchase food to feed the deer who will thank you with their characteristic nodding!
