Most visitors would have gone to Kasuga Taisha after visiting Todaiji. Coming from Shin-Yakushiji, it was a 1km walk or so to Kasuga Taisha. It seemed a little bit like a back entrance. Kasuga Primeval Forest in the list of places to visit next time – I wonder if the entrance is somewhere along here.
Though you can only see the lanterns lit-up twice a year (February & August), there is a dark room which allows you to experience the lit-up lanterns. It was full of people, so picture-taking was difficult if you do not want to obstruct the path.
