(Note: my Kimono is very formal, Maprang's Kimono is very casual)
Me, Maprang and Taro-kun
Me, Taro-kun, Obachan(grandma, who taught us tea ceremony) Momo-chan and Maprang.
Note: Pretty much all older ladies, that you are friendly with, are Obachan. It''s very confusing!!
Also Kun, Chan, San, Sama are all titles that go at the end of names to decribe your relation to other people.
This is in Nara City. Nara is the former capital of Japan(before Tokyo and Kyoto).
I forgot the name of this building in Japanese but it means big east temple. There's a huge budda inside.
Me and my friend chiho lighting incense out side of the temple.
Note: If you can't tell how large it is check out the heads at the bottom of the picture.
Nara is considered sacred and deer are considered sacred, so there are many dear in Nara. They come up to you and wait for you to feed them. It was really scary but kind of fun at the same time.
This budda is very special. It's been said that if rub it and then touch a part of your body (that is sick or injured) that it will be healed.
