... day tour to Nara, sight of a Buddist temple dating from 700 AD, reputed to have the largest sitting Buddha anywhere, but Singapore and Hong Kong make a similar claim. How big is the Buddha? Well, thereby hangs a tale .. it seems that when it was being restored after one of the two fires that toppled the head, the eye fell back from the socket. A child volunteered to go through the eye hole, retrieve it, and put it back in place. However, once in place, ...

Rainy all day Tour of Kyoto

... longevity as the leaves do not fall but live long like the shogun hoped to. The flooring is designed to squeak when someone walks on it. By using metal clips under the floorboards that scrape against each other when any weight is applied, a soft chirp-like sound is emitted.

The shrines were unique; the mice were especially cute. While walking along the Philosopher's Path, we saw into an emperor's tomb from above, a view not many people ...

... in 1629. This marked the end of the shogunate. The castle was rebuilt in 1931 and renovated in 1997. The central tower or "keep" is 130ft high and really spectacular. We took the elevator up (I think that the last time we walked up 8 stories to the top, but that was when we had knees). You can see all of Osaka from the top observatory floor. We then walked down looking at the exhibits on the way down. On floor 2 we had our pictures taken in ...
