Japan Sightseeing (1)

5 June: Akashi Kaikyo Bridge 
Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge is the longest span bridge in the world, located in Akashi Strait between Kobe and Awaji Island in Hyogo Pref. The total and central span lengths are 3,911m and 1991m respectively.

The Bridge was constructed as one of Honshu-Shikoku Bridge project, which is one of the greatest projects in Japan to connect Honshu with Shikoku by both highway and railway. The construction work was started in May, 1988 and completed in April, 1998 after 10 years’ construction period.

6 June: Todaiji Temple
Constructed in 752 on the order of Emperor Shomu, Todai-ji Temple's Great Buddha Hall in Nara is the largest wooden structure in the world and houses an immense statue of Rushana Butsu.


Deer Park at Nara
The park is home to hundreds of freely roaming deer. Nara's nearly 1200 deer have become a symbol of the city and have even been designated as a natural treasure. Nara's deer are surprisingly tame, although they can be aggressive if they think you will feed them. Deer crackers are for sale around the park.


Kiyomizu Temple
 
Kiyomizu Temple occupies an excellent location on a steep hill in eastern Kyoto. The quaint street leading up to the temple is lined with souvenir shops, restaurants and ryokan (Japanese-style inns). The temple grounds have open-air pavilions providing beer and noodles and countless hawkers offering talismans, incense, and o-mikuji (paper fortunes).

Japanese meals (10 June 2015)

We had a quick buffet before we adjourned to Tokyo Disneyland.

My plate of breakfast. I always made sure I finished up all that I had taken. Don't believe in food wastage.


We spent a few hours in Disneyland. Hence our lunch were not provided.
My girl and I just had Mickey biscuits bought from the Disneyland.

love this potato crackers


Surprisingly, we were taken to a Chinese restaurant for our dinner.
I didn't post the pictures as they were not very tasty as compared to Japanese food.

So I commented in the Prestige form that we shouldn't be served Chinese food when touring in Japan.
