Numerous lanterns are found on the grounds representing the passion of the worshipers. There are 352 national treasures stored in this shrine.

Naramachi (lunch)

During WW2, this area was spared from damage, preserving the old structures and facade of the old town of Nara. You can find several town houses, galleries, restaurants, and shops that were refurbished in contemporary style while keeping its original machiya style. Many of the structures here where originally built in the late Edo period to Meiji period.

Nanendo

Nanendo is an elegant and beautiful octagonal structure built by Fujiwara no Fuyutsugu, dedicated to the peace of his father's passing. A national treasure statue is housed in the temple.

Kofuku-ji Temple

Originally founded in 669 as Yamashina temple in Kyoto, then moved to its current location in 710. Major damage occurred during the war in 1181, and the current building we see now was built after that time. Kofuku-ji was registered as UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1998.

Kofuku-ji Five-Storied Pagoda

Built in 730 by the founder of Kofuku-ji, this five-storied pagoda has endured disasters and rebuilt 5 times over the years. The pagoda we see now was reconstructed in 1426, standing in 50.1m tall. The five roofs symbolize land, water, fire, air, and sky, representing the 5 dimensions of our world.

Harushika (sake brewery)

Established in 1884, Harushika is a historical sake brewery. 100 years later, in 1984, Harushika started exporting Japanese sake to the world. The name Harushika comes from the legend that gods of Kasugataisha came from the heavens riding the deer of Nara. Enjoy the taste of traditional Japanese sake at Harushika. In this sake brewery, you can enjoy Kikizake, a taste testing set of 5 kinds of sake.
