Tōdai-ji temple (東大寺) in Nara is a very large compound with many different temples and shrines attached to it. It’s a lot of fun to walk around and visit these less popular places. The Nigatsu-dō (二月堂) is a very impressive, massive structure, located on a hillside of Mount Wakakusa in Nara, it gives a commanding view of the city!
