Japan 2015 Series: Kyoto

Kyoto is one of my favorite tourist spot in Japan. I saw some Filipino celebrities posted on their IG account the famous Fushimi-Inari Taisha. I just told myself before that when I go to Japan, I will surely visit the Shrine. And when I had the chance to go to Japan last 2015, I finally set my foot in this amazing place.

Japan 2015 Series: Nara Park

At last, my series Japan blog post is activated. Hahaha! This past few months, I’ve been through a lot of stuffs. Back logs pa more. Hahaha! Well, here’s my Nara Park photo blog.

Nara Park (奈良公園 Nara Kōen?) is a public park located in the city of Nara, Japan, at the foot of Mount Wakakusa, established in 1880. Administratively, the park is under the control of Nara Prefecture. The park is one of the "Places of Scenic Beauty" designated by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). Over 1,200 wildsika deer (シカ or 鹿 shika) freely roaming around in the park are also under designation of MEXT, classified as natural treasure. While the official size of the park is about 502 hectare, the area including the grounds of Tōdai-ji, Kōfuku-ji, andKasuga Shrine, which are either on the edge or surrounded by Nara Park, is as large as 660 ha.
