    I’ve been to Kyoto but not Nara. If I am ever lucky enough to return to the area, I would love to make a daytrip to this scenic town. It’s amazing that they were able to build such a large structure out of wood, and those deer are adorable.

    Nara is such a beautiful place. Much less chaotic and full on than Kyoto – and so much history to discover. Loved your post – took me right back to my time in Nara.

    I love Nara and the deer! Your photos are very good and capture Nara beautifully. Nara is so easy to visit from Kyoto too.
