My week has been quite busy, and September will be over soon.
I will share a few of summer photos with you.
You can imagine how big the Great Buddha of Nara is!
The Buddha is 15meters high and it weight 250 tons.
August 6, it was an annual cleaning day of the Great Buddha.
About 200 Buddhist monks and others purify their bodies and gather at the Great Buddha Hall
in white clothing and straw sandals; after taking out the Great Buddha’s soul, they chant together
and began cleaning his body.
Visitors kept clicking their zoom cameras in the dust falling on them.
See? Some visitors are wearing masks on their faces.
I covered my nose and mouth with a scarf I always carry in my backpack.
This is another mysterious summer event held in Nara Park located in our ancient Nara of Japan.
The flower candle Festival called "Tokae"!
Toukae is the Japanese word which represents a piece of candle that is shaped in the form of a flower.
Nara Park was filled up with the thousands of candles lined up from August 4 to 15.
It is 7 o’clock, now is the time to start lighting up candles.
Visitors came to light the candles as a prayer for world peace.
These were taken before lighting up, at early evening.
You might be surprised to see Nara deer not disturbing the unlit candles that surround them.
Nara deer are tame and loved by Nara people.
Thank you for visit.
I hope you have a wonderful day, full of smiles.
Until next Time!
