Five days immersed in Kyotos culture were not enough, so we continued to Nara. Amused we watched everyone feeding the tame deer in the park. The major sightseeing spot in Nara is the gigantic Tōdai-ji featuring the Daibutsu (big Buddah). Wow this one is indeed big. Almost beeing 15m tall, (14.98m precisely), it is spectacular. Plain crazy what the japanese built in thr early days!
Along our journey heading to Shikoku we visited the harbour city Kobe and the Himeji-castle.
