Little Dear/Deer :)

The pictures of Japan were taken by my husband on a wonderful 2 week trip to Kyoto and the surrounding area. When I can get him to label his pictures better I will have more info to post!
Nara was the capital of Japan between the year 710 and the year 784.

    I'm sorry to bother you about this, but I noticed that your Nara page tips are about Nara in Nara-ken however, they have accidentally been placed in the page for Nara in Hokkaido. I thought you should know so you can place it in the city you visited.

    Those white tablets hanging down at the entrance gate, are the names of sponsors who have donated money to the temple.
