    Keeping with the trend I'm in Nara to see guess what? That's right more temples but these ones are even more note worthy.

There were many tourists, locals and students at this time, not sure if there would be less people in the morning though. I'm not sure if the entrance fee was Y500 or Y800 but it's worth it to observe this magnificent structure.
