Day 153 – Nara, Japan
Today Ryan and I took a day trip to Nara, Japan’s first capital city. Nara boasts eight World Heritage sites, four of which are located in the beautiful Nara Park. As we toured Nara’s historic temples and shrines (from the Tempyo Period), we saw gorgeous deer everywhere. Nara Park is truly a natural treasure. Ryan and I had a great time exploring this ancient city. We met a ton of Japanese students (kids love us for some reason) who were also visiting Nara to learn about its historical importance.
