I'm an amateur photographer based in Nara. The city of Nara has a longer history than Kyoto. It was capital of Japan before the government of Japan moved to Kyoto. It might not be as famous as Kyoto, but it is just as beautiful. If you come to Japan, please visit Nara. You will discover how beautiful it is. It only takes 40 minutes from Kyoto by express train! Thanks for stopping by! Copyright © Hiro_R All Rights Reserved.
