Nara Tours

Nara was once the capital of Japan, in fact, it was the first permanent capital established. Nara City’s former name is Heijo-Kyo, which is why the main palace in Nara received the name Heijo. This ancient city is known as the cradle of Japanese civilization, and is home to more than a thousand free-roaming deer.

One of the ancient cities of Japan is Nara, also known as the cradle of Japanese civilization. In 710, the city of Heijo, modern day Nara, became home to the first established capital in Japan. One of the many attractions in Nara is the Nara Deer Park, which is often filled with visitors and free- roaming deer. Unlike most wild deer, these are used to being around humans and will often follow people around for a treat. In Shintoism, deer are seen as the messengers of god, amplifying their symbolic presence with the temple in the vicinity. The Nara Park is wide and also has beautiful scenery, particularly during the spring and autumn season when the flowers bloom and the leaves change color. The Todaiji Temple is just near the entrance of the Nara Park. In the past, this Buddhist temple was so influential in politics that the government eventually moved the capital further north to Nagaoka Prefecture around 74 years after its establishment in order to reduce the temple’s influence. The Todaiji Temple houses a great Buddha statue the largest bronze statue of Buddha in the world. It is also an official UNESCO World Heritage Site. Along with that, there are also enormous standing wooden structures of guardians in the temple, each one with unique features. The details on the lotus that the bronze Buddha sits on gives it more significance as it has Sanskrit writing on the outer petals and can be seen clearly if the viewer approaches the statue closer.
