Today started a little later than day 2. I went to Kyoto Station and I think I took a local express line to Nara. I was planning on visiting Nara Park, Toudai-ji, Koufuku-ji, and Isuien Garden. I managed to make it to three of the four and sadly, I missed the garden. Probably because I was too busy stalking the other students that were there on their school trip. (I couldn’t help it! At least I’m a student myself so it doesn’t make me feel that bad. Yes, I am a coward.) There were a bunch of Sika deer here too! (Nara is famous for its deer, isn’t it?) I bought some deer cookies to feed them and they swarmed me. Initially it was frightening, but in retrospect, I think it was kinda funny. It was such a nice day too!
Now for Toudai-ji!
After leaving Nara, I headed off to Himeji for Himeji-jou.
Unfortunately, it was under reconstruction so they wouldn’t let me into the main keep. There are also annoying construction things (for lack of better words) in the pictures I took.
Hopefully, day 4 will be up soon!
