We made a small detour to visit this Shrine and it was really worth it! Quiet atmosphere and beautiful cherry trees in bloom) Don’t hesitate to make a short pause there n your way from the railway station to Todai-ji Temple!

By the time of our visit to this Shrine in early April, no flowers from the sakura trees could be seen around. Completely different from that of last year. A bit disappointed and just took a few photos and left for the main temple.

This is a pretty little shrine very close to the National Museum. There are so sakura trees here and hence good for visiting during cherry blossom season.

A small temple in Nara, currently very pretty because of the cherry blossom 🌸🌸 covering the entrance I wouldn't bother otherwise

The simplicity of this place and its connection with nature- ice - reveal much about the Japanese love of simple natural things in their everyday life

Just another average shrine. I did not find this one such a must visit place, even if it was so high positioned here on TA.
