We arrived in Nara around 1 pm. On the way to Todaiji, we passed several parks with lots of deer. It was hard to catch one looking directly at the camera.
On the way to Todaiji.
I think this was Nandaimon Gate.
Todaiji’s main hall, the Daibutsuden.
Saw another group of kids wearing the same colored hats.
Took photos of the 15-meter tall, seated Buddha.
There were also models of the main hall.
Some more of the items on display inside:
There was a line towards one of the main hall’s columns. I saw that children were going through a hole in it. Can’t remember if I had asked anyone about it.
There were a lot of kids that day.
We also visited the east part (Nigatsudo)…
…where we ate lunch.
There’s also a place where there’s a view.
You can see the town from here.
On the way back to the main hall.
We walked back to Kintetsu-Nara Station.
