Ukiyo's Nara! 奈良市

Nara is one of Japan's ancient capitals. It was the capital of Japan from 710-784. Even though this period is short, even after the capital was moved to Kyoto the temples in Nara were still powerful. Nara was modelled after the Tang city of Changan.

Nara is located in the Kinki (Kansai) region of Japan which is home to the Osaka metropolitan area . Nara is also famous for the wild deer.

I hope you can enjoy my pictures!

Did you buy any 鹿煎餅?
They look cute, but once you bring it out, they swarm around you and start biting all over...
