Todai temple and Kasugataishi in Nara 東大寺と春日大社

Hi there Konichiwa~,

 

Have you been to Nara? it's close to Kyoto and you can find awesome historical things older age than Kyoto. I haven't been there over 20 years!! we had good time in Todaiji-temple and Kasugataisha last December both of them are close to Nara station (kintethu and JR).

奈良を訪れたことはありますか?京都に近く、京都よりも古い歴史のものに出会えます。20年以上ぶりに、東大寺と春日大社に行ってきました、両方とも奈良駅に近いです。

`` Nara no daibuthu`` is the biggest Budda statue at Todai temple in Nara. The temple was built in 743 by Shomu tenno ( Emperor Shomu) to protect country by Budhism.

奈良の大仏は、日本で最大の仏像で、聖武天皇が743年に国を守るために作らせました。

At Narapark there are thousand of deers!!! 大量の鹿が奈良公園に!!

Kasugataisha shrine is about 15min on foot from Todai temple. The Kasuga taisha was buit in 768 by Emperor Shotoku. When  build Heijyokyo he brought God to Mikasa Mt. for worshipping and to protect Heijyokyo.

春日大社は東大寺より徒歩15分くらいです、768年に称徳天皇が平安京を守るために作ったとされています(諸説あり)。

I recommed to get there by bus or taxi from Nara station, there is a tourist information (English, Chinese information and buggage rooms also) in front of Nara station ( the landmark is Starbucks coffee there).

奈良駅からは、バスかタクシーがおススメです、奈良駅の目の前には奈良観光案内所もあります、(目印はスターバックス)。

We tried Budda pudding and amazake(green cup one) at Maboloba Honpo near Nara station.There are many kinds of pudding flavor.The amazake is one of Japanese traditional non alchohol sweet drink, it's made from fermented rice.

大仏プリンと甘酒を奈良駅近くにある「まぼろば本舗」で食べました、プリンは色々な種類の味があります、甘酒はノンアルコールな甘い飲物で、米麹からできています。
