Thursday 29th August 2019, Nara.
A stunning day. Another of those Wow! moments. And to think I hadn’t even heard of Nara until a couple of days ago, it wasn’t even on my route.
Ancient capital of Japan studded with pagodas, museums and temples, many going back to the 8th century AD (but beware like the 2 Ronnies sketch about the broom many have been rebuilt up to 5 times over the centuries).
The high point was the Great Buddha in the Todai-ji.
