Kyoto and Nara Day Trip from Kyoto Including Nijo Castle

Explore the cultural treasures of Kyoto and Nara on a full-day tour
from Kyoto. See all the highlights of Kyoto including visits to Nijo
Castle and the Imperial Palace. Then travel to the UNESCO World
Heritage site of Nara and some of the oldest Buddhist temples in
Japan. Hand-feed the deer and see the Kasuga Shrine with more than
3,000 lanterns.

Known as the cradle of Japan's cultural heritage, Kyoto was Japan's
capital and the emperor's residence from 794 until 1868. On your
morning tour of the city you'll see the main highlights of wonderful,
culture-rich Kyoto, including Nijo Castle, the Kyoto residence of the
Tokugawa Shogun. The castle was built in 1603 and is noted for the
contrast of its solemn appearance and gorgeous interiors.

You'll also visit Kyoto's most popular temple, Kinkakuji Temple, the
home of perhaps the world's most authentic and exquisite Japanese
garden, as well as the celebrated Golden Pavilion. At the ancient
Kyoto Imperial Palace you'll visit the former residence of the
Imperial family, which clearly shows the Japanese taste for purity,
simplicity and calmness. Here you'll also visit the Shishinden
Imperial state chamber where enthronement ceremonies took place.

Nara was the country's first permanent capital city, and has an
abundance of UNESCO World Heritage sites, including some of Japan's
oldest Buddhist temples. You'll visit the Todaiji Temple housing a
great image of Buddha, colorful Kasuga Shrine with 3,000 lanterns, and
the Deer Park, where tame deer freely roam and can be hand-fed.
