Osaka – Nara
Dates: 6 Apr
Nara is a must-do day trip from Osaka, takes around an hour on the train from Osaka > Nara station, then it’s around 20-30 minutes walk from the station to the deer park & main temples.
Unfortunately when I went the main temple with the big buddha had construction work going on so the outside wasn’t too pretty, but it was still a lovely walk around and pretty cool feeding the deer – who can get fairly aggressive if you have food and don’t give it to them! I had my pockets nibbled at a few times.
The park is huge, and there’s much more there than what I saw so be sure to arrive as early as possible.
