The most impressive and famous temple in Nara, home to the giant buddha. Really impressive and beautiful ground. Most all of the sites in Nara are in Nara Park meaning that it's impossible for you to enter here without first saying hello to the incredibly cute and friendly deer. Take your time soaking up the sights and marvels of the giant buddha, his 2 companions, and 2 fierce guardians.
As you make the loop around, right before the souvenir section you will see a large wooden pillar with a hole through it. Legend says that those who can fit their whole body through will reach eternal fortune... give it a try!
