Todaiji Temple Light Up, Nara

Great illumination at the annual Tokae festival

By Manish Prabhune    - 1 min read

I went to Nara Tokae in 2012, an annual event held in summer. The event gives you the rare chance to see Todaiji temple at night, beautifully illuminated. The main attraction are 20,000 lit-up candles, which create a mystic atmosphere that cannot be experienced during the daytime.

Travelling to various places and locations in Japan for over 20 years now, I want to share my experiences and also hear about destinations that I still have not been to in the land of the rising sun. Am a photography enthusiast and love to do slow shutter blue hour photography in Tokyo.
