Cool Japan / Day trips from Kyoto / Nara

(Sacred deer at Nara Park)

We set aside another day to visit Nara. Nara is only about 30 minutes by local train from Kyoto. Nara was Japan’s first permanent capital so there are an endless supply of historic treasures. The two highlights for me were the sacred deer and the Big Buddha in Todaiji Temple. All the major attractions are in or near Nara Park which makes exploring by foot quite easy.
There were thousands of sacred deer in Nara Park. They are extremely friendly so tourists can interact with them by petting or feeding them rice crackers. They do have a tendency to be a bit aggressive when it comes to finding food in a tourist with an open backpack!

The Todai-ji Temple is the largest wooden building in the world and houses the Big Buddha. This structure is immense. In reading the history, the original wooden structure burned down and what we see today is actually a smaller replica of the original!
