My favorite place is probably Japan's first real capital city, Nara! If you talk about Nara, the first thing you think about is deer! If you visit Nara, you will see deer everywhere. I don't really like deer, but the reason why I like Nara is because of the temples.
I visited the Todaiji Temple a week ago which is a landmark of Nara and is one of Japan's famous temple. Its great Buddha Hall is surrounded by green grass. On the inside you can see a huge statue of Buddha which is dedicated in the year 752. If you walk deeper in the hall, there is a pillar with a hole. The legend says that if you manage to pass through this hole, you will attain enlightenment in your next life. This made me glad that I managed to pass that hole!
The other reason why I like Nara is because of how peaceful it is. If you have a stroll around Nara, you can see that they have fewer buildings and more trees than other cities. Plus a nice cold breeze when you visit Nara around autumn.
