Exploring the Universe: Japan 2015- Nara Highlights!

From Osaka, we went to Nara, where I went crazy because I dearly love deer. And Ninjas!

Sakura trees everywhere.


My fave mascot.

We stayed in this beautiful inn with deer origami and teeny tiny crane origami. They had the most beautiful yukata too, which I wore incorrectly accidentally heh:



First deer sighting, near the temple:





Inside the temple, you can donate a thousand yen (if I remember correctly) for temple restoration/and they’d give you a tile in exchange where you can paint your hopes/wishes, to be used in the temple. (I’m Rean, btw. My brother and I asked if we could split a tile and they agreed)


Sakura ice cream!


We went to the Ninja Museum, where they had ninja-themed trains:

My dad and brother joined the shuriken-throwing thang after the ninja show (which I thoroughly enjoyed) and I’m happy to report that I was able to hit some areas of the target (not a bulls-eye, but the target nevertheless hehe).

Cute kids in ninja costumes:


I wish we had ice cream vendo machines here too! I try to eat new ice cream/cold icy things when traveling abroad and I had the strawberry one, I think. I forgot to snap a photo because we were in a hurry, eep.


Holding hands with deer, checking out the sights:


Bye Nara! I really loved the Nara vibe, it reminded me of artsy Baguio. IMG_2426
