Cannot believe that I am finally writing / drafting the last post for 9 Days Japan Backpacking Trip! It was such an adventure for us last year and so many memories / travel info that I wanted to share.
During our last full day in Kansai region, we went to Nara from Osaka. I’ve been visiting Kyoto for many times during my 8/9-year stay here in Japan but I never had the chance to take a day trip from Kyoto to Nara. So glad that I was able to cross that out from my #japanbucketlist, haha.
Took the train from Osaka to Nara.
Met one of the official mascots of Nara, lol.
To be honest, I was a little bit confused about the fact how “Sento-kun” (the one I am holding hands with in the photo lol) was approved as a character design haha. I was thinking if this actually angered some religious people lol.. but anyway, looks like it was OK-ed, haha!
As always, cannot just get out of the train station without searching for the stamps haha.
