Nara Afternoon Solo tour; Todai-ji

7-days wandering solo in summer Japan
may 28 - june 04, 2013 tuesday to tuesday

3D photo studios, Himeji Taiyo park specials 

Due to unplanned visit in Himeji's Taiyo Park, my Nara trip resumed on very late afternoon trip skipping now the supposedly included Kobe area. Another effect of this major change was I did not entered the famous temple of Nara because I arrived around past 1800H while the visitor hours was up to 1730H only. Anyways, I still have to take photo-ops just to say I visited this place.

Nara is an ancient capital city in Nara Prefecture, Kansai region of Japan. Overshadowed by its more famous neighbor Kyoto, Nara is omitted from many a time-pressed tourist's itinerary. However, Nara is home to many important scenic and historical sites, and today preserves its main sights much more attractively than Kyoto within Nara Park and Todai-ji Temple. T┼Źdai-ji, home to the famous Daibutsu, the largest Buddha statue in Japan and one of the largest in the world. The Daibutsu-den is said to be the largest wooden building in the world and is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
