Nara

Nara (奈良市) is a city (population ~370,000) in the Kansai Region of Japan. In the 8th century it was the capital of Japan in a period known as the Nara Period. A selection of stunning temples and shrines make this a popular travel destination. It is also home to a very large population of tame deer that roam freely, particularly in Nara Park.

Katsastettiin kolme: Kofuku-ji, Kasuga Taisha ja Todai-ji. Kasua Taishaan vie upein kivilyhdyin reunustettu kuja. Todai-ji:stä taas löytyy valtava buddhapatsas. Satuimme ...

    Nara was another one-night stop-off. Our hotel was pretty easy to find, being right next to the station, and it was pretty nice. To be honest there is not a lot for me to say about Nara as mostly we just wandered around - it's a pretty place with a nice park and a lot of deer wandering around ...
