Full description
Discover Nara on a fully customizable tour. Nara is in close proximity to Kyoto and Osaka, and its rich collection of traditional sites make it an ideal destination for a day trip from either of its larger neighbours. Start your day by meeting your guide at your hotel or chosen location, then choose sites you wish to visit depending on your interests. Example 6-hour Itinerary: Meet your guide at the designated meeting point you chose and let the tour begin. First visit Kofuku-Ji temple, a historic site that has been registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Discover several designated National Treasures here including the Buddhist sculpture masterpiece, the Statue of Ashura. Next, head for Todai-Ji temple, a World Heritage Site that is Nara’s most famous landmark. Admire the statue of Kongo Rikishi at Nandaimon Gate and Japan’s largest Great Buddha statue. Stroll through Nara Park which is famous for its wild deer species. Enjoy the verdant natural setting of Nara while taking part in the popular activity of feeding the deer inside the park. Then discover Kasuga Taisha temple, another World Heritage Site with an impressive red main shrine. Explore the Kasuga-Taisha National Treasure Hall which contains valuable works of Buddhist art.

Tour nos llevo por sitios turísticos de Nara y el guía nos explicó bien cada lugar

O guia Toshi conhecia bastante o local e o inglês dele era perfeito, mas ele se esqueceu que havia duas pessoas no tour. As explicações eram dirigidas somente a uma pessoa, sendo que o evento foi reservado por duas pessoas, nos causando desconforto. Ele também saía disparado na multidão, sem olhar para trás se seus clientes estavam o acompanhando ou não, então foi difícil acompanhá-lo em alguns lugares mais movimentados. Decidimos por encerrar a atividade antes das oito horas estabelecidas, pois achamos o guia um pouco desrespeitoso.
