Solo Backpacking in Japan: Osaka & Nara

Solo Backpacking in Japan

First day, I went to Biliken 😊 you will be lucky if you touch Biliken’s feet (based on my research)

As usual, I was lost again, I got off at the wrong station.😅

I just bought sweet bread and went straight to Nara.

Going to Nara, I used my kansai thru pass card boarding to Nara line.
It’s a long walk going to the Nara park from the station. But here they are!

Deers! They really like crackers. So if you want them to go to you, you just need some crackers.
And there’s a lot more in Todaji temple. I also love the fall foliage at the park

After Nara, I went to subway to have some dinner. And again, I can’t find Dotonbori.

So I asked the sales lady in some store, and she gave me the directions to it. So I kept on walking until I see it. (But where’s glico?)

Need to go back to J-Hoppers. I was able to talk to Jimmy again, before going to Kyoto.😊

  1. That’s such cool thing to do you went solo backpacking in Japan! The deer is Nara looks so cute! Solo travel is sure sound fun, but how did you take photo of yourself though? Must be quite troublesome to keep asking for help to take photos of you! Unless you have a tripod?

  2. Japan is definitely my top destination on my travel wishlist. I didn’t really plan to visit Nara, but after reading your post and seeing the images you’ve took I extended my dream road trip with this place.

  3. Osaka and Nara looks really fun place to visit! What a fun solo trip you had! I never been to Japan it’s on my bucketlist!

  4. You have no idea how many times I got lost while traveling 🙂 many times I was not even alone, I was with my friend, the one that I travel with and we always laugh every time we get lost 🙂

  5. Beautiful! My girlfriend and I are looking for an interesting place to travel this summer and this might actually make the list. Sending to her now to see what she thinks 🙂

  6. You, my dear are adorable! I just love following along with the fun places life takes you (especially when you’re lost). The deer remind me of those in our backyard. We live by some woods and every morning I see them in the trees. And I’m so gald you got to tough Biliken’s feet. Lucky you! x

  7. Japan looks wonderful! I must go, I really enjoyed reading this post! I’ve always wanted to go backpacking and this looks like the best place to go!
