Nara Guide

Japan's ancient capital, Nara, can be found just south of Kyoto. It was the site of the ancient city of Heijo-kyo, which was established in 710 after the government decided to centralize its power. The capital was transferred in 794, and this period is known as the Nara Period in Japanese history. Today, the Daibutsu (Great Buddha) is the most popular tourist destination in the city. It is found in Todai-ji, a large temple in the middle of Nara-kōen, or Nara Park. Many deer, which are considered sacred, can be seen roaming the streets and grazing in Nara Park. There are Shinto shrines, Buddhist temples, and ruins in Nara. After the capital was transferred, the city remained powerful, and temples of Nara (Nanto Shichi Daiji) are reminders of the imperial power of the past.
