Walk around Nara Park

Took me more than 5 years to come back to Nara. I couldn’t really take enough time to walk around Nara park, and finally I can check that out of the bucket list. Played with deers, revisited Todaiji (I was young and inexpert writer) and wandered through the whole park, visiting the other shrines and temples in what it’s one of the largest traditional buildings concentration in Japan.

Nara Todaiji shrine

My one and only trip to Nara was back in 2009, even though I lived in Tokyo for many years, Nara was one of those sightseeing spots I’ve always wanted to go back, but never found the time, or I prefered to keep exploring more locations around Japan. Another of those hard level one-day trip, wake up early, get on the first train from Tokyo, and make sure you don’t lose any of the connections on your way back to Tokyo back at night. It’s hard, but possible, we did it. Another option is to go from Kyoto or Osaka, less hard day trip. The main spot to visit, or the main spot we wanted to visit was the Todaiji shrine, and of course, feed and play with the deers of the city of Nara all the way long.
