The Kasuga-Taisha is a Shintō shrine in Nara, Japan and is a UNESCO world heritage site. It is located close to the two holy mountains Kasugayama and Mikasayama. The shrine is said to be built in 768.

All buildings have been rebuilt over time, the four main halls every 30 years according to tradition. The way to Kasuga-Taisha is a highlight itself: it leads through the Nara park with deer living there. It is decorated with a thousand stone lanterns.
