Comments

- Comparing to the temples and shrines of Kyoto, those of Nara seems to be more simple. You can see many precious ancient art works which contain influences of China and India. Great Buddha is a splendid work you should see. (USA)

- To appreciate Nara, stay the night and see Todaiji or your favorite spots at night, when the crowds are gone. Best seen by moonlight. (USA)

- Beautiful place. Deers give some special flavor to the scenery. (Chile)
