runAway: Exploring Todaiji Temple

Aired: Nov. 28, 2019

Dean and his team have made it to Nara Pref. in western Japan. They pause their adventure through Japan to explore Todaiji, one of Japan’s most historically significant temples. The temple complex is located in Nara Park, also home to hundreds of deer who roam freely in the grounds. This month Dean will see Japan’s largest bronze buddha statue and also unexpectedly faces a challenge inside the temple to complete his Todaiji experience.
