Welcome to Nara, amigos! While we were in Kyoto, we took a day trip to Nara. woohoo!!
Where is Nara? What's in Nara?
Nara is one of the prefectures next to Kyoto. I don't remember how long it took us to go to Nara from Kyoto, but it wasn't that far + costed about 800 yen to get there by train. Apparently, Nara has the most UNESCO World Heritage Listings in Japan. (More information of Nara, click HERE).
A serious meeting with the mascot of Nara prefecture.
We first went to Nara park. It's not a normal park that you see nearby your house. What is the difference? It's huuuuugeeee + there are tons of wild deer and people who sell "Shika Senbei;" food / crackers for deer. They are not scared of people at all... They don't care if you go close to them, touch them, pet them,,, etc.
However, once you get shika senbei, they DO care about you. They watch you buying shika senbei (-_-)(6_6) THEN, friendly deer become aggressive deer!! GIVE ME, FEED ME, I'll follow you FOREVERRR!
You just need to experience this!! haha We also visited couple shrines & temples. These pictures are from one of them called; Todaiji. There is a world largest sitting Buddha. How large is it? Oh, his middle finger is a lot taller than I am. I am about 5"2 (155cm) tall. His middle finger is "my height x 2". ⁽⁽◝( ˙ ꒳ ˙ )◜⁾⁾ I am standing behind the Buddha... oh, Buddha & I can't fit into a picture.
