Nara is a beautiful city that is not too far from both Kyoto and Osaka. Hop on to either the subway or JR line and after around 45 mins, you’ll arrive at this beautiful green city. To be completely honest I was totally smitten by Kyoto before I made my trip to Nara and was convinced that there will be no other city that will come place to being my favourite city. I gotta be honest, Nara did steal my heart, half maybe because I’m still so in love with Kyoto but I gotta admit, Nara did made me a little confuse there.
说真的,还真的没想过自己会那么喜欢奈良。一直就觉得自己会很专一,对京都会恋恋不忘,可是去了奈良,真的还让我自己动摇了。奈良真的好绿好漂亮,还多了很多很肥,和可爱的鹿。你若不是很喜欢动物的话,我还是不会太建议你过去了哈哈哈。路程不远哟,就京都/大阪过去的话也就一个小时之内可以抵达

So the easiest train station to would be the Kintetsu Nara Station. I made little trip with S because it was the only sunny day left on both our trips in Japan and I think S just couldn’t resist the offer of checking out Nara before he left Japan. Come to think of it, I only met S for less than 10 hours! but all was well, had so much fun and S was quite punny with all his deer jokes
今次奈良之旅还多了一个新认识的新加坡朋友,也因为天气的关系(就整个星期唯一一天的好天气),加上我的怂恿,结果我们就一日游去了奈良(其实想说如果有鹿攻击的话,就把他推过去然后我跑路)
We first went for lunch at this really fancy japanese restaurant, for Unagi of course and was quite happy with our meal. Prices were quite reasonable I felt for a Unagi Don but it was a good thing we went rather early, the queue was quite insane after.
就先到Naramachi 吃鳗鱼饭咯~还好早去了,不然人潮可恐怖了
Hey deer, you are like an overly attached girlfriendSam

But seriously, once you get out of the place there’s like deers everywhere! According to the locals, these deers come down from the mountains everyday for food, and leave back to the mountain before sunset to rest! Crazy!
可是到了奈良,真的随处都看到鹿呢!根据当地人说,这些鹿傍晚就会回山,到了早上,再来城市找食物吃。我的天啊,山路到城市可有一段的距离呢!
Course, you gotta be prepared that these little fella will attack you for food
你若有食物,你就是他们的最佳对象了
Dude you got food?
老板,有食物吗?
No, serious bro I know you’ve got food
认真的,我真的闻到你有食物

吉城园

Then we came to this free entrance Japanese theme garden, that provides free entrance for foreigners! Win!
然后就来到了吉城园,外国旅客是不用付钱的哦


Todaiji|東大寺
As you can tell, crowd’s insane so we skipped the iconic temple and headed over to Todaiji Nigatsu Do instead
人潮也太恐怖了,加上我们两个人对佛庙没什么太大的兴趣,就直接跳过了
Todaiji Nigatsu Do|東大寺二月堂
This place is perhaps my fav lookout point in Nara. It’s quiet and you can see the deserted Nara Dreamland(I really really wanted to check it out but T.T next time I guess)
到了这个東大寺二月堂,你就可以很清楚看到奈良的风景咯~其实如果你稍微仔细看的话,还会看到被荒废的奈良游乐园。这个地方还算是蛮高的,所以真的会建议到这边拍拍照








And that is pretty much it for the Nara trip, we spent the rest of our time just strolling around Nara park, checking out more deers and by sunset, the deers were happily going back to the mountain and we too went back to Osaka so that will be a different post again =)
我的奈良一日之旅就到这啦~过后就会去大阪,所以剩下的就留到大阪之篇再写哦
