looking forward to meeting Asura

Posted by
Hiro (Kyoto, Japan) on 14 November 2009 in Documentary & Street.

The other day, My wife and I went to Nara, the old capital of Japan. The purpose of our small trip is meeting Asura 阿修羅 at Kofukuji Temple 興福寺. Kofukuji's Asura is very famous and very popular, lots of people want to meet him. We have to queue for meeting him about an hour. We went to the National Museum to see Treasure Exhibition 正倉院展 after that, so we got very tired. We spent a very cultural day.
