The Asukadera Buddha- This is located in the Temple in Askua, Nara Prefecture. It is one of the oldest (if not the oldest) Buddhist image created within Japan. It has been highly damaged over the years, however, and gone under much repair. Still, it was neat that we were allowed to photograph it!!
A tomb in Askua. We were allowed to go inside this tomb - it is empty today. But as we entered, my professor said: "This would be a bad time for an earthqauke!!" Megan's response: O_o;;;; uh-oh... (heehee!)
My tatami floor!! Isn't it fun??
My Engrish shirt!! You gotta love the engrish!
