Nara is another of Japan’s gems! It is home to the Great Buddha; an awe-inspiring effigy, grandiosely housed within the largest wooden structure in the world (keep an eye out for future posts). Located just a skip and a jump from Kyoto it made the perfect day trip during a recent trip to see the cherry blossoms bloom. Like Miyajima, Nara is home to a mob of friendly deer, ambling aimlessly about. These are a few pictures I captured- a deer peacefully drinking from a still stream and a child tentatively feeding it a treat.
