The two-day, one-night Japan trip allows travelers the opportunity to appreciate and better understand the captivating charms of old-world Japan in a region where much of the architecture and beauty has remained standing and unchanged for centuries.

The trip to Nara includes visits to Kasuga-taisha shrine, Kiyomizu Temple (‘Pure Water Temple’) and Todaiji Temple (commonly known as ‘The Great Eastern Temple’) which contains the world’s largest wooden building, the Daibutsuden (Big Buddha Hall).

“Although it’s a short trip, we think this excursion to Nara allows travelers a unique opportunity to discover one of the most idyllic regions in all Japan,” said Backyard Travel’s General Manager Maeve Nolan. “With this Nara tour, travelers will get to see the delicate region assisted by an expert Backyard Travel guide to ensure they don’t miss any of the charming area’s many delights.”
