Nara is best visited in the spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November). The weather is mild, with cherry blossom season's pinks and autumn's blazing oranges and reds dominating the landscape. Nara Park is a massive park in the heart of Nara. Many of Nara's principal attractions are located here, including Todaiji, Kasuga Taisha, Kofukuji, and the Nara National Museum, founded in 1880. Hundreds of deer walk freely on the property. Todaiji Temple is worth a look. Constructed in the year 752, this is the symbol of Nara and home to Japan's most massive bronze Buddha.
