Experience Details
Explore Nara with a bilingual guide by your side! Although Nara is most renowned for its bowing deer, sacred Todaiji Temple, and the colossal Great Buddha, there are plenty of other treasures to be found in this ancient city. What awaits you on this whirlwind tour? A specialty sushi tasting, sake tasting at Harushika Sake Distillery, ice cold beers at Naramachi Microbrewery, authentic Japanese food at a local restaurant, and lightning-fast mochi pounding at Nakatanidou (you may have seen this legend on social media). Nara, planted firmly in the Kansai region, is a testament to the country's history and cultural heritage. As one of Japan's oldest capitals, Nara is graced with ancient temples, serene gardens, and friendly deer that roam its tranquil parks. Beyond its historical treasures, Nara offers a vibrant culinary scene where traditional flavors and modern gastronomy converge, the stars you’ll experience during this tour! Experience flow… Try Kakinoha Zushi: Kakinoha zushi, sushi wrapped in persimmon leaves, is a Nara specialty and one of the region's most famous foods. We’ll visit a local shop and buy a box of this specialty sushi together. Sample Sake at Harushika Sake Distillery: Sit down to a guided tasting session featuring five sake varieties. Don't miss the opportunity to bring home your favorite sake or souvenirs from the shop. Beer at Naramachi Microbrewery: Step into Nara's old town at a Japanese craft beer brewery established in 2017. Enjoy two refreshing beers and tasty snacks. A Glimpse Into Edo-era Living at Naramachi: Transport yourself to a bygone era as you explore a meticulously recreated machiya, a traditional townhouse from the Edo period. Local Delights at an Early Dinner: Unwind at a local restaurant and enjoy a special dinner featuring Japanese flavors and Nara specialties. Mochi-pounding Magic: Visit Nara’s famed mochi master! If the timing aligns, you'll have the chance to witness a mesmerizing mochi-pounding session and tasting.
