Nara is the place to go for Japanese culture and history. There are a large number of World Heritage Sites, such as Horyu-ji, Kasuga Taisha, the Great Buddha Hall at Todai-ji, Yakushi-ji, Shosoin, and Ryosen-ji. History buffs will want to explore ruins like Kitora Tomb, Takamatsuzuka Tomb, and the Ishibutai Kofun tumulus. We recommend you take in the ruins as you walk the Yamanobe-no-Michi, said to be Japan’s oldest road.
