Nara is known for the ancient capital in Asuka  era which is before Heian in Kyoto.

First, I visited Asuka village to feel ancient air.

Asuka was the capital in Japan before Heijou.

Asuka temple or Genkouji temple is one of the famous temples there.

There is the oldest  statue of Buddhaa in Japan 

Sogano Umako, the minister, asked the emperor for the permission to build in 587.

It was made by 鞍作の鳥, kuratukurinotori.

The face of the Buddhaa is different from ones of Japanese famous statues of Buddhaa.

I spent the quiet moment in front of the statue for a while.

It was calm and relaxing time.
