Nara

By marksams, 04/17/2010 - 09:06

Nara was a nice break from the big cities, as it was a smaller city with large park areas.

Highlights
- Walked from station to Nara-koen and saw a lot of wild deer being fed biscuits by tourists
- Kofuku-ji Temple
- 5-storey pagoda at Kofuku-ji Temple - the 2nd tallest in Japan
- Passed through Nandai-mon gate
- Todai-ji Temple - including the world's largest wooden building (called Daibutsu Den) housing the Great Buddha
- Walked up to Nigatsu-Do Hall and stood on the veranda for view over Nara
