The view of Daibutuden complex of Todaiji temple is very nice. A wooden stair corridor to and from Nigatudo and view of the Nara city is fabulous.

This is behind the main hall of Todaiji where the big buddha sits. It is really much quieter than the main hall as most people visit Todaiji just to see the big buddha. In my opinion, this is also worth taking a look.

Todaiji was very crowded the day I visited, but Nigatsudo hall was still rather peaceful. I imagine it would be amazing at dusk. There was some minor construction taking place on the grounds when I visited in February 2017 which I found a little annoying....More

Nice temple that not many tourists would walk all the way up. Not far but wondering really why? Peaceful surely. Nice resting point with self-service tea too. Just need to wash up afterwards. Love it.

This building was situated neatly behind the Main Hall and since most people leave after seeing the Big Buddha, you'll have it all to yourself. Great photo opportunities! Don't miss it!

Walk up the temple, you will get a nice view to the city. The place is clean with deer walking about. You can touch and feed them. Unique experience; especially when you have kids with you. They will enjoy it.

The walk up to this temple is half the fun. Many ways to get to the top. Climbing all the way up the stairs to the balcony of the main building gives a nice view of the city. All of it is very atmospheric and...More
