I was a guide in Japan in July 2015.
As we entered the Daibutsu-den in the temple Todai-ji in Nara, I wasn’t looking at what was inside, I was looking at my friend. I had been here before, seen the Daibutsu before. This was his first time and I wanted to see his reaction.
On our way to Daibutsu-den
I went to Omizutori in Nara in March, 2014.
I never like to plan my trips too much. I usually have a list of things I like to do, but have no plan of completing the list. I’m always open for new ideas and plans when travelling.
I ended up in Nara by chance, and as it turned out I could not have come on a better day.
I visited Nara, Japan’s first capital, in March, 2014
Most people know that Tokyo is the capital of Japan, and before that it was Kyoto. What most people don’t know is that before Kyoto, Nara was briefly capital, the first permanent capital in Japan.
