Nara park 奈良公園

by Masaki

Nara Park at the foot of Mt. Wakakusayama used to be a state-owned land.


In 1880, it was given to Nara Prefecture for nothing for the purpose of making a park.


This was the beginning of Nara Park.


Today,  the district including Todaiji Temple, Kofukuji Temple, and Kasuga Shrine is called Nara Park.


Nara Park is one of the most representative sightseeing spots in Japan, which attracts more than 14 million people from the inside and outside of the country throughout the year.

Nara was the first capital of Japan, where the influential Fujiwara clan thrived.

Visitors can feel an ancient atmosphere here.


The park is famous as a deer park.

There are many national treasures and important cultural assets including the Great Buddha Statue and the statue of Ashura.


Along with the deer regarded as a messenger of the god, these ancient treasures have been protected with care.

By the way, recently wild boars often appear in the park. They sometimes appear in the daytime.


Because these two animals eat different food, they don't fight for food.


In Japan, there is a religion called Shinto (native religion), whcih emphasizes the harmony with nature.

1000 years later these wild boars may be begging for food to visitors by making a bow.

Welcome to my homepage.
For me, meeting with people is a gift from God.
A new encounter inspires me and enriches my heart.
People sometimes ask me unexpected questions I can't answer on the spot.
New encounters are, in a sense, a kind of continuation of embarrassment and bewilderment.
As a tour guide, going around with people is like an adventurous journey.
Those who I met stay in my heart with good memories.But I also would like to stay in your heart.
Yes, every encounter, solo or group, is a glow of jewels.
I taught at senior high school. Good teachers are not always a good scholar, one time a comedian, another time a hero, like a spiderman.
I'm an expert in history, culture, and religion.
Why is Japan so mysterious?
My tour is full of smile, humor, laughter, and lectures.
I'm also a lover of music and a chi exercise instructor.
Why don't you try chi exercise with me? read more
