Kasuga Shrine – Kasuga Taisha –

This shrine was founded in the 8th century by the Fujiwara family and is completely rebuilt every 20 years, according to the Shinto tradition, until the end of the 14th century. It is situated at the foot of the hill in a pleasant and leafy setting populated by herds of sacred deer waiting for someone to feed them.
The entrances to the sanctuary are flanked by hundreds of lanterns, and there are many more in the sanctuary itself. The lantern festival, held twice a year, is very popular. In 1998, it was designated as a World Heritage Site How to get to the Kasuga Shrine.
The bus departs from Nara Station and gets off at the “Kasugataish Honden” stop. From the stop 10 minutes on foot.
