The country's first established capital, Nara houses some of the most storied buildings and natural attractions in Japan, with eight World Heritage Sites in total. Including Shinto shrines, Buddhist temples, and imperial ruins, the sites tell the story of faith, art, and politics in the burgeoning nation, and today represent the backbone of Nara tourism. Pristine temple gardens and an ancient, sprawling forest provide the natural sites to go with all the manmade jewels, with the latter supporting a large population of deer, a symbol of the city. Add Nara and other destinations in Japan to your travel itinerary using our Japan visit site.
