Exploring Nara

21st December 2011

I spent the day exploring Nara park. There are a few nice gardens, a giant Buddha statue, Todaiji temple, Kasuga Taisha shrine, a five story pagoda and lakes around the park. There are so many deer in the park, you can buy "deer buscuits" to feed them if you like.
