Todaji Temple

By Weekender Editor

From Kintetsu-Nara Station, take a 15-minute stroll towards the famous Todaiji temple to say hello to the Great Buddha of Nara housed in the temple’s Daibutsuden hall. Both the statue and its home are noteworthy, being one of largest bronze statues of a Buddha in the world and largest wooden building in the world respectively. The Buddha, a representation of Vairocana, weighs about 500 tons and measures nearly 15 meters in height (close to 50 feet).

How Much: Adults ¥600, elementary students ¥300

Address: 406-1 Zoushi-cho, Nara city, Nara Prefecture
