After visiting Shin Yakushiji temple, I ran across the Kasugano field to Nara park’s Nara National Museum where they held the exhibition of “Taimadera temple” that is one of my favorite temples in Nara. In this exhibition, I was able to watch the the Woven Taima Mandara that depicts the magnificence of the Pure Land paradise. It is the legend of Princess Chūjō-hime, a young noblewoman of the Nara period whose piety was responsible for the creation of the mandara. This ledgend made Noh play’s “Taema”, Jyoruri’s “Taima Chujyohime”, kabuki’s “Chujyohime Taima Engi” and so on. I love Shinobu Orikuchi’s novel “Shisyano Sho” (The Book of the Dead) that is very ancient romantic and fantastic story.

After that, I went to the Todaiji temple. In Nara park, there are Todaiji temple, Kasuga shrine and Nara National Museum and so on. Addition that, there are many deers everywhere. Nara park’s deers are Natural Monuments, and they have been protecting for the sacred and divine wild animal of Kasuga shrine of Nara.
