Nara To-kae is a series of light up events around Nara city. After visiting Ivory1 with some friends I met up with J for dinner and a romantic stroll.
We went to Hahaha for food and drinks, a ¥270 place where you order with one of those electronic pens that you used to have to read books as a kid. As we left there they were just lighting the candles.
I don’t think my pictures show just how many candles there were and how spread out they were – as far as the eye could see in all directions!
It was still really hot so we walked to Todaiji and then sat by a river and had a beer.
By about 9.30pm they were dousing them and collecting the cups so we headed home, we had a really nice time and might go back again for the last night.
