Have One of Japan’s Most Scenic Temples All to Yourself

In the stillness of night, a sacred and ethereally beautiful experience awaits

Ever wanted to experience a Japanese temple without the crowds?

If you’re looking to spend a truly divine night, turn your eyes to Tsubosaka-dera in Nara, Japan’s first capital city.

After closing hours, let a monk take you on an exclusive tour of this magnificent site, which overlooks Mount Yoshino, long Japan’s most famous cherry blossom viewing spot.

You’ll learn about the temple’s history, don traditional dress, take part in a Buddhist prayer session and receive a good-luck talisman.

All that remains is exploring the grounds to your heart’s content before an enchanting and otherworldly night.

Group reservations are also welcome.
