On our way to Kōfuku-ji Temple, a buddhist Temple in Nara Park. Beside it is Kōfuku-ji's 5-story Pagoda Japan's second tallest next to Kyoto's 5-storey Pagoda, another must see tourist attraction here.
Unfortunately, The Central Golden Hall is currently under construction after it has been burned on 1717. It is extremely a famous destination for our buddhist friends. Here, a few steps from Golden Central Hall is Eastern Golden Hall with its famous Northern and Southern Octagonal Halls. 👍🏼
Beside Eastern Golden Hall is a small shop which sells souvenir items. It also houses a huge vending machine of desserts! Yes! Desserts! We got this from it and it definitely tastes good! Hope we have one in the Philippines! 😁✌🏻️
We then reached the gates of Todai-ji called Nandaimon Gate a large wooden gate with fierce-looking warriors as its guards, they are called Nio Guardian Kings. You'll be amazed how large they are and how fierce-looking they are too! 😐
Approaching Todai-ji temple which is known to be the head buddhist temple of all provincial buddhist temple. And mind you, the temple housed the famous massive Buddha. It is also called Great Eastern Temple.
The very main hall of Todai-ji Temple is called Daibutsuden Hall translated as Big Buddha Hall, the massive Buddha (Daibutsen) is made of bronze and already 2/3 of its original size since it was already been reconstructed.
After we visited the Daibutsuden Hall, we tried these roasted Sweet Potato which I only saw in Koreanovelas as their staple food especially during cold season. They used small stones which are then heated by a fire under it. Interesting! 😁👌🏼
We had a very long and tiring day because of too much walking. HAHA! Thus, we ended our tour with of course, Ramen Eating. We tried a humble shop which lives by its name, they serve Ramen in a traditional way and even have designated place where you can take an "indian sit" while slurping your ramen soup! 🍜
When the night seems very cold, we then craved for an authentic ramen noodles and again, visited Dotonburi. Here, we tried their Ramen. What really amazed us was that their way of order-taking was up to the vending machine located outside the Ramen House. amazing! 👏🏼
