Daytrip: Kashihara Jingu

April 25, 2010

I was all prepared to have a horrible weekend. Sorry to dwell on narcissistic topics, but my computer (or, more accurately, the Internet) decided to become laggy as Windows 95 and has been stressing me out for the past three days. Yet instead of spending all day Saturday hunched in front of my laptop downloading anti-virus software (spoiler: isn’t the problem! And this post is taking an obnoxious amount of time to write!), I got out of the house. One of the wiser decisions I’ve made.

I visited a famous Shinto shrine in nearby Nara prefecture, Kashihara Jingu. It’s an extremely pretty place that I could never do justice with words (coupled with the fact I currently have writer’s block/sometimes wonder why I even maintain this thing), so instead look at a bunch of pictures and simplistic captions.
