Nara Deer Park
How to get there? Alight at Umeda station and from there, ride the JR line to Nara.
Train to Nara: 800 yen one way
Travel time: 1 hour from Osaka
Entrance Fee: NONE!
8:00AM Left for Nara
Unlike Kyoto, Nara is smaller and its main attraction is walking distance from the station. As soon as you arrive at Nara station always remember to go to the Tourist Information Center. They will give you a map and answer all your questions. Do not worry because they speak in English!
After going to the TIC, I immediately walked to Nara Deer Park. I was really amazed at what I saw. I did not just see a bunch of deers. There were shops, temples, gardens, and a museum.
After passing through all these shops and stalls, you will see a temple and a few deers.
After visiting the Park, I went back to the station and saw a grocery. I obviously went there to buy a few snacks. Their grocery was sooo huge!
3:00 PM Went back to the hotel to freshen up and change for the Halloween party in Dotonburi
6:00 PM Left for Dotonburi
Dotonburi was crazy! There were a lot of people wearing costumes. IT WAS SO COOL! They were so friendly. I took pictures with several of them. PLUS! They gave out candies to everyone which was really sweet.
I wanted to end my trip with a really awesome restaurant. I went to one of the side streets in Dotonburi and saw this restaurant.
I decided to eat there because a lot of people were lining up. While I was lining up, I saw two men that went to the counter to the pay and their bill was 16,000 yen. I got scared but then I saw that they accepted credit cards so I said to myself, “F*ck it! I’m eating here! “ Luckily, when I was looking at the menu, it wasn’t that expensive. It was 1000 yen per plate of beef. I ordered premium roast. There were 4 pieces but it was enough for me. It really does melt in your mouth. IT WAS SOOOOO DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!! “Indescribable feeling. Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling… IN MY TUMMY” hahahah
