A half day in Nara

After lunch on our last day in Kyoto, we boarded the train to Nara for a short jaunt.  Nara is well known for it’s huge temple, Todai-ji, which houses the worlds’ largest bronze Buddha, as well as its many deer roaming the park.  The original temple construction was started in 728 AD, and although the current building is significantly smaller than the original, until 1998 it was the largest wooden building in the world.
