Kyoto and Nara 2011 Fall

I have been having terrible jet lag yet since I came back from Japan. Having jet lag makes me feel that I am lazy... I should adjust myself into the U.S. life cycle.

Last month, I went back to Japan to see my family and friends for the first time in two and half years. My hometown is Saitama where is located next to Tokyo like the same relationship between New Jersey and Manhattan. I traveled Kyoto and Nara during my stay in December and the autumn leaves were at their peak! It was really beautiful. Also, I am a fan of Butsuzou ( image of Buddha or statue of Budda) and I had a great experience to see the special image of Buddha at Hase temple in Nara . I felt peace when I touched him. I would like to share some photos I took there.
