Japan: Nara

Horyuji, a World Heritage Site, located in the province of Nara.

The garden walkway into the temple.

It is one of the oldest existing wood structure dating back into the 7th and 8th century, in the world and the first site to be declared as a World Heritage in Japan.

The wonderful scenery of the surroundings.

However, the entrance fees of 1000円 is quite forbidding.

Nara was the capital of Japan from 710 to 784. The old structures, temples, monuments and culture made Nara another World Heritage Site.

In Nara, there are many deers in the park.
