    You will visit Todaiji Temple (Nandaimon/Great Buddha Hall) and Kasuga Taisha Shrine (main shrine), which are registered as World Heritage Sites. You will also see the summit of Mt. Wakakusa, which offers a splendid view of the grass-covered mountain. A national interpreter-guide in English will guide your tour.
