    ... deer were everywhere in the park and even on the main road. First the Kofukuji Temple, founded in the 7th century with the five story pagoda rebuilt approximately 500 years ago. It had been burnt down a total of five times. Many historical building have burnt and been rebuilt a few times. The main cause of the fires have been lighting (plus the buildings are all wood) and war times. I went into the temple and while we ...

It is 15m tall, weighs 500 tonnes, and is one of the largest bronze buddhas in the world. It also has nostrils of 50cm diameter (not sure why the guide book felt the need to specify that!).

    ... in the bus, there is no squealing or wailing, no arguing or mobile phone chatter (there are several signs prohibiting mobiles), just the quiet buzz of contented commuters.

    Nara is a fabulous place, full of shrines (big shrines), statues ( really big statues), and a lot of over familiar wildlife.

    ... are built on making parts for fans, prayer beads, house altars, etc. Across from the fan shop there was a small tofu-making store. We also passed by a place that assembles house altars (used to honour dead relatives) and another one that makes paper lanterns. These small home-based businesses are said to be the main industry of Kyoto, but their numbers are declining as young people refuse to take up their ...
