Nara is one of the places you just can’t miss on a trip to Japan. It used to be the capital of Japan and the 7 Great Temples of Nara, some of them built in the 7th century, are still in perfect conditions.
In this small city, I found the perfect place and it became my favorite from all I’d seen before- the lantern forest that leads up to the Kasuga Grand Shire temple. It counts over 3 000 stone lanterns and hundreds of deers. The deers are also a very interesting element. They are considered to protect the city. According to an old legend, a mythological god Takemikazuchi arrived in Nara on a white deer to protect the city.
P.S. I’m taking part in an exciting contest on Vanity Fair with my… Instagram looks! Unexpected, isn’t it? So I’d really appreciate it if you helped me in it. Find the Page of the contest HERE x
