Day trip to Nara, Japan | Come say hi to the deer.

Day trip to Nara

I went to Japan 3 times for all, but only last year, I finally went to Nara. Nara is located next to Kyoto in the Kansai region. Nara is the perfect day trip if you are in Kyoto or Osaka.

However, I took a day trip to Nara from Tokyo which is a 3,5 hours journey from Tokyo with the Shinkansen + a train to go to Nara from Kyoto.
Kyoto is really quaint and pretty much a window into the past. Nara is an extension of this as you get the opportunity to dvelve further into ancient time and get a peak at what was once the first capital of Japan
.
Nara is well known as the free roaming deer city, as well as well its massive buddhist temple, many shinto shrine. Nara is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
