What you'll do

After meeting up in front of the statue, it's time to start the Nara historical walking tour!
As soon as we pass through the shopping arcade, we will explore a Japanese old town that is extremely different from what we know of metropolitan Tokyo. Walking between the historical buildings, we can go inside a merchant's house and see how the people around here lived. This is the first step to know about Japanese culture.

Continue to walk to a secret spot, which has been hidden for centuries.
Welcome to a hidden Japanese pyramid. Let's take a break from walking(or hiking) as you observe this mysterious structure in the middle of a quiet town. We can also see the city view of Nara from the hill.

Walk inside Nara park and interact with cute wild deers
Explore the beautiful red shrine housing hundreds of lanterns and go see a huge temple with a great Buddha statue. Around here, you can interact with some wild deers. You will see how "polite" they are!

Hi I'm Shoto! I’m from Japan but lived in California for 5 years when I was a college student. After graduation, I moved to Myanmar and worked there for 2 and a half years. Then, I came back to Japan two years ago and started guiding people visiting Japan as I studied sociology and loved to share with you the historical and cultural differences between Japan and your country! I started offering this experience because I wanted you to know about Nara more deeply.
