Tour Description

Standing since the 7th century, Horyuji Temple is the world’s oldest wooden structure and the first Japanese Cultural Heritage designated by UNESCO. In the tour, you can see world’s valuable cultural assets or historical structures, sculptures, arts and crafts, and others from the 7th century, while observing changes in style, material and/or technique in the course of time. Then the tour is like walking through history on foot as long as 1300 years as time-travelers.

For the biggest, you visit Todaiji Temple. It is the temple with the world’s largest wooden structure originally built in the 8th century. The temple is also famous for its Great Buddha statue, the world’s largest bronze Buddha statue made by the order of an emperor wishing for peace and prosperity of the nation and its people. 

In both temples, be amazed not only at the high level of construction techniques and craftsmanship but also at the fact both the largest and the oldest have been inherited to us up to the present through a vast passage of time. Join the tour and feel the strength and power of natural wood even stronger than reinforced concrete!
