Nara Park is famous for its historical Buddhist temples and museums, and also hundreds of freely roaming deer 🦌🦌. These friendly beings are usually tame. Some deer even learn to bow politely to visitors for food, though they could be aggressive if they think you are hiding food from them.

硡馬(Ema) are wooden wishing plaques found outside Japanese shrines and temples. The worshipers write their prayers on the back of the plaque then hang them on a rack. The front of the plaque has an animal painting associated with the zodiac or the symbol represented by the shrine or temple. Ema are ritually burned at special events to symbolically liberate the wishes from the writers.

The Osaka Castle sits in the middle of Osaka. Besides resembling the 🏯 emoji, it contributed to the unification of Japan during the sixteenth century. Toyotomi Hideyoshi, a great warrior, general, samurai, and politician of the Sengoku period, ordered the construction of the Osaka Castle in 1583. Today, the historical structure houses an informative museum about the history of Toyotomi Hideyoshi and the castle.

Gwangalli Beach | Busan, South Korea

Gwangalli Beach is pretty much alive at night. On the same night, we watched break dance battles and traditional drumming performances, danced to the music blasting from various pubs, and sat at the beach while enjoying some local beverages (thanks to loose drinking laws in South Korea). At midnight, the Gwangan Bridge across was glowing in rainbow colours, competing with the neon lights on the coastal high rise buildings. Sometimes I wonder if this city ever sleeps. (The subway does sleep. We missed the last train and had to take a taxi home. I blame the 🍺)

Gamcheon Cultural Village | Busan, South Korea

We stumbled upon this meticulously painted temple that played an important role in the war and religious history of the community. This hidden structure was apparently the headquarters of Taegeukdo, a religious movement that led to the prosperity of the slum turned village.

In the 1900s, Gamcheon Village was occupied by people fled from the Korean War. Distant from the battlefront, the village was quickly filled with war refugees. The homeless dwellers used scrap materials to build houses for themselves. In the 1950s, the founder of Taegukdo moved the religion’s headquarters to Gamcheon, converting and uniting the residents to rebuild the poverty-stricken slum. The brick-and-concrete houses we see today were once makeshift shacks.

Gamcheon Cultural Village | Busan, South Korea

Filled with art installations and craft stores, Gamcheon Village lies at the foothill of a coastal mountain in Busan, South Korea. The vibrantly-painted houses stack up like lego bricks. Many called this place the Santorini of Korea.

The artistic history of the town originated from government redevelopment in 2009. With the help of artists and local residents, some empty homes were revamped into art galleries, book cafes, and shops. They applied vivid colours to the facade, created murals, and built art installation all around the village. Since then the art project has been causing an influx of tourists and film-makers to experience the remarkable urban landscape.
