Nara Travel Guide

I am motivated to finishing up these Japan guides as we still have a lot of people asking us about our trip to Japan (it has been almost a year since we went!). At the end of our first week in Osaka we went to Nara for the day. TIP: For some affordable breakfast, 7/11 in Japan has so many treats! We had one close by our AirBnB and got breakfast here almost everyday.

Nara Park

The roaming deer are considered Shinto messengers to the Gods and the well known symbol of Nara. The wild deer are scattered all around Nara Park and we couldn’t pass up the experience of feeding them.

Kofukuji Temple

Right in the middle of Nara Park is the Kofukuji Temple. There are also food vendors and it’s a nice place to stop for lunch.

Nandaimon Gate & Todaiji Temple

Did you know Nara used to be the capital of Japan? Todaiji Temple is a well known landmark of Nara during this period. We’re always amazed at how the Japanese can preserve their culture and respect their historical landmarks.

Kasuga Taisha Shrine

This was our favorite! We stumble upon this beautiful Shrine with beautiful moss covered lanterns. Beautiful and serene in every way, the photos don’t do it justice.

On the way back, we stopped to pick up Japanese cheesecake in Nara station. It’s different than the cheesecake we know and baked to a soft and fluffy texture.
