In Nara Park you will see Todaiji Temple and its immense bronze Buddha, Kasuga Grand Shrine, Kofukuji Temple, and stroll past a number of fine scenes from the Nara period (694-794). If you come to Kyoto, then you should also plan on seeing the timeless attractions of Nara. Nara generally requires a full day. It is about 40 min. by train from JR Kyoto Station. Driving to Nara in a hired car is not recommended as it can take much longer than the train to arrive.
