The country's first established capital, Nara houses some of the most storied buildings and natural attractions in Japan, with eight World Heritage Sites in total.
Kick off your visit on the 3rd (Wed): appreciate the history behind Todai-ji Temple, examine the collection at Todaiji Temple Cultural Center, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kofuku-ji Temple, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kasuga Grand Shrine, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Nigatsu-do Temple, and finally walk around Nara Park. On the 4th (Thu), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: steep yourself in history at Byodoin.
