30 thoughts on “Nara: The Ancient Capital of Japan”

  1. I like the way you write these reports in Tiếng Việt as well as Tiếng Ahn.

    1. Thank you, Don! 🙂 When I first published this blog, I chose English as my primary language. But then my mom asked whether I could write it in Vietnamese as well, because she and her friend want to read it. As baby boomers, they speak very little English, and Google Translate is so unreliable (at least in the translation of Vietnamese) 🙂

  2. The contrast of colors between the bronze lanterns and the orange wooden posts is really eye catching. Wonderful post.

  3. Just last week I finished writing my own post on Nara, but unlike the day when you went there, it happened to be cloudy when I visited Nara. It was a very nice day trip from Kyoto, and despite the grey skies Todai-ji was still an impressive sight.

    1. It’s huge, isn’t it? I have seen many Buddha statues, but this one is surely one-of-a-kind 🙂 I was also impressed by how vast the park is. If you don’t know, you can easily mistake it as a forest, especially in the early morning or late at night.

  4. Hi Len thanks for these articles my bf and I will be visiting Japan soon and will surely check out this recommendation of yours. I love your photos and style of writing too very engaging

    1. Thank you for your very kind words! I am glad that my post can help you plan your trip. If you have any further question, feel free to ask 🙂

    1. Thank you! What do you like most about Nara? My favourite was the deer. Some are pretty bold, while a few are really tamed. Can’t resist giving them crackers 😀

      1. Well, we knew to bow to them – so as they would bow to us! ( before giving them the crackers). We had some great fun – some chased us around. It was all about the deer and the beautiful shrines at Nara. Fantastic place.

  5. Len sống ở VN hay nước ngoài? Nước nào? Học tiếng Anh từ bao giờ? Học ở đâu? Học tiếng Việt được bao nhiêu năm? Len viết tiếng Anh và tiếng Việt đều hay.

    1. Dạ cám ơn cô 😀 Cháu về Sài Gòn được khoảng 2 năm rồi ạ. Trước đó thì ở Đức, nhưng thuộc dạng du học sinh thôi ạ. Từ hồi cấp 1 cháu đã học tiếng Anh rồi nên đọc và viết ok. Nhưng nói thì hay bị pha tiếng Đức. Kiểu viết sao thì phát âm vậy 🙂

    1. Well, I’ve only been in Kansai and Chugoku (West Japan), so I cannot tell which place in Japan I do like most. But I enjoy the atmosphere of Nara, the food scene of Osaka, as well as the sunset at Miyajima 😛

  6. Absolutely breath taking images. I didn’t know about this wonderful destination – Nara! Thank you for sharing the information.
