Kyoto and Nara (Edited)

Pictures from Kyoto and Nara, two places everyone should visit at least once.

Ginkakuji, Temple of the Silver Palace













Kinkakuji, Temple of the Golden Palace















A view from Kiyomizu Temple (Kiyomizu means Pure Water)





Geisha outside Kiyomizu














There's another one of these rocks at the Jishu Shrine, where you can appease the gods of love. If you can walk from one rock to the other, with your eyes closed, you will find true love easily.











Me at Kiyomizu Temple







Me and a deer of Nara





Todaiji Temple in Nara, where the Great Buddha lives


















Our Japanese high school friends we took a picture with after helping each other take group pictures. I think they look like rock stars.









Me and Jody's sister Paula lighting incense at Todaiji with the Japanese boys







A small child crawling through the hole of enlightenment in one of Todaiji's pillars. How will I ever get through?




It's easy. Just detach a shoulder.



I guess all that ninja training I did while I was here came in handy after all.
