【Live Tour】 Nara/Kofukuji Temple and Nara Park Tour
What we'll do
Nara was once the ancient capital in Japan.
Nara has many historical sites, artefacts and relics.
There is proof that the capital flourished in the 8th century.
Nara is also rich in nature.
Mountains, primitive forests and parks enhance the attraction of Nara.
We are visiting Kofukuji Temple and Nara Park on the tour.
The temple played an important role in Nara when the capital was located there.
It shows the prosperity of the Fujiwara clan and the ups and downs of history in Nara.
The deer in Nara Park are another attraction.
Deer have been regarded as messengers of God since ancient times and they fit well with the scenery of this holy city.
You can enjoy the breathtaking beauty of these places on the tour.
I'm looking forward to seeing you soon.
Atsuko-san is a truly knowlegeable about Kofukuji-temple. I learned a lot from her. Thank you!
I joined her live tours twice. Atsuko-san showed us her PPT while she was holding the camera outside.
It was amazing. The flow of the tour was wonderful. I enjoyed learning new information from her.
She is a good story teller.
This tour was fantastic and well-organized. Our guide, Atsuko was very knowledgeable and hospitable and prepared various materials to show us. The quizzes were also great fun and really helped us to understand Kofukuji Temple and its surroundings. Thank you, Atsuko.
