Temples, Shrines and Deer

Nara is a must-visit for any visitor to the Kanto area. It is a short and convenient day trip from Osaka or Kyoto and is DEFINITELY well worth your time.

Nara not only has great historical and religious significance, it is saturated in Japanese arts and culture. It is home to many world-famous temples and shrines.

Nara is also famous for its deer population, which roam freely in Nara Park and are very tame. The deer is considered a National Treasure and very sacred.

    Great shots of Todaiji Temple. I think that Nara is unmissable for any traveler to Japan.
