Places to visit
Todaiji Temple is one of the most symbolic buildings of Tenpyo era culture. It includes many famous buildings such as the Great Buddha Hall, the largest wooden structure in the world, Hokkedo Hall where many impressive Buddhist sculptures are enshrined, and Nigatsudo Hall where the traditional “Omizutori” (Water drawing) ceremony takes place annually. The grounds of Todaiji are so extensive you may need a whole day or more to explore thoroughly.
