Ninja Village and Nara Experience

Ninja Village and Nara Experience, Nara, Japan (B)

Today, we first went to Nara, which is famous for its World's biggest bronze Buddha. Before entering the temple compound, we have to pass by the Nara Park, where we were welcomed by the freely roaming Deers. 

Nara Park - This beautiful lawn park extends 4km east to west and 2km north to south. Groups of deer, messengers of the gods, roam freely through the park. Its beautiful landscape with half-hidden views of temple and shrine rooftops enchants visitors throughout the seasons. 

The entrance fee to Nara Temple is 500 yen. Inside the temple, they provided English speaking guide which gives us free 30 minutes educational and historical background of the temple.
