“... out in the countryside around Nara; the fields of pink flowers interspersed with rice paddies made an attractive backdrop to this ancient temple, Horyu-ji, which was the first Japanese UNESCO World Heritage Site.”
“The grounds are large, and contain fantastic sights and treasures.”
“It was lovely.. enjoyed walking through all the deer to get to the great buddha hall and gardens.. nice complex, cute deer , nice shopping and great sights, what more could you want.”
“This giant Buddha is Japan's largest and is really a sight to see! Make sure to see the Buddha from all angles, especially the side view as you can really appreciate the massive size by getting a little closer to it.”
