Cultural Day Tour in Kyoto & Nara: Arashiyama, Kinkaku-ji and Nara Todai-ji Temples

Explore Kyoto’s all-famous Arashiyama district and regal Kinkaku-ji temple before moving on to Nara’s Todai-ji temple. Yup, here’s where to get up-close with the lovely deers.

Rise early and embark on a full-day historical tour covering only the top sights. Home to the towering Sagano Bamboo Forest, Arashiyama is a tourist-y mountainous district with highly picturesque spots. Dotted with holy temples and grand palaces, Arashiyama has painstakingly preserved the city’s historical charm. Next stop is the three-storey Kinkaku-ji temple that’s famed for its golden pavilion and scenic strolling garden. Clad in about 48 kg of gold (for first two floors), this site exudes pure grandeur. The tour closes with a lovely visit to the temple complex Todai-ji, which houses the Great Buddha statue (reportedly labelled as world’s largest, and its main hall rebuilt twice after fire incidents). Soak in the tranquility of the temple grounds and see the deers sauntering freely around (they are, after all, being regarded as messengers in the religion).
