Japan - Day 12: Tōshōdai-ji (唐招提寺) & Yakushi-ji (薬師寺), Nara

1 December 2010 - Our aim of the day is to spend half a day visiting two temples which are located two train stops from Takanohara Kintetsu Eki. We swore that we had had enough from the past 11 days thus minimising our walking time is crucial. Owing to that, even the two temples selected, Tōshōdai-ji (唐招提寺) and Yakushi-ji (薬師寺), are merely a stone's throw from each other.
