Sekai Isan Gurutto Pass

This is a one-day pass which costs JPY800 and going to the following places:
Toshodaiji Temple - Yakushiji Temple - Suzaku-Mon Gate (Ruins of Nara Heijokyo Capital) - Nara Shiseki Bunka Center - Kintetsu Nara Station - Kofukuji Temple (Kencho Mae) - Himurojinja Shrine - Nara National Museum - Daibutsuden Kasugataisha Mae - Naka Shimizu Cho - Gankoji Temple - JR Nara Station
This sightseeing bus depart every 60 minutes.
We walked from JR station to visit the places of interest. We felt too tired to walk back on the hot and sunny day, so we took a bus back to the station. Remember to collect the ticket when you board the bus. Then give to the driver when you alight and pay for the ride. The transportation system is excellent in Nara too. There's a circle route around Nara.
There are two types of busses in Nara; one is front-embarking and rear-disembarking type and another is front-disembarking and rear-embarking type. For the former, the passengers pay their fare in advance when they board the bus. The fare is fixed throughout the service zones.
