... On arrival in Nara it is a straight walk along the road (through an underpass) to the Todaiji. We stopped at another temple complex en route attracted by the wandering deer in the pathway.

The only iffy thing with eating in Japanese cafes and restaurants is that they still allow smoking at the tables....funnily, it is quite shocking to see some one light up and it is yucky trying to finish your meal with smoke drifting all around you.
About 1.00pm the rain had eased a bit but we would definitely still need our brollies. We went to find out where to meet the guide for our walking tour. We ...
