My top recommendation is Todai-Ji Temple and the Great Buddha. Its located in Nara park, where you can see the wild deer that bow their heads for crackers. And from Nara JR Station West Exit, take the "M! Nara" Shuttle bus, it's a FREE Nara loop circ

観光地がすごいが、馬鹿な鹿がいっぱいいるから、路が糞だらげ。足下にご注意ください。 Great place with many, many historical sites. But the deers shit everywhere. Watch your step.

I would go back to Nara, we didn't do much apart from the deer park, but there seemed to be a lot more going on.
