As we know, good times always past so fast! Spring Holidays are over now and I hope that all of you had some quality time whatever you've been doing.
I would like to tell you about the place I've never visited before and that became my favorite place in Japan after I did.
It's Todai-ji Temple in Nara city. The temple is a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site as "Historic Monuments of Ancient Nara", together with seven other sites including temples, shrines and places in the city of Nara. Deer, regarded as messengers of the gods in the Shinto religion, roam the grounds freely.
The building itself is truly a masterpiece. It's so big that not every camera can capture it. It was so monumental and picturesque, I've been just standing in front of it for maybe 15 minutes, trying to remember as many details as I could.
Inside the building another masterpiece has been waiting for me. The Great Buddha, the biggest bronze Buddha statue in the world.
Todai-ji Temple was originally founded in the middle of 8th century and has been reconstructed few times, but the beauty still remains.
When I left the Temple I was amazed by friendly deer all around. They were coming to people and bowing politely to ask for some food.
This trip made me love Japan even more than before.
