Wow! Thailand is full of exciting things.

I'd like to share my adventure in Thailand.
Our big event of third day was to see the sights in a world heritage AYUTTAYA
 where was the Thai capital for over 400 years until its destruction in 1767.
Ruins of numerous temples and palace buildings cover a vast area.
Transportation from Bangkok to Ayuttaya is not convenient, so we used
guided bus tour . First, we visited Wat Yai Chaimongkhorn(ワット・ヤイ・チャイモンコン).
They said King Naresuan(ナレースワン大王)  built this large pagoda to
celebrate the victory of his single-handed combat on the elephant back in 1592.
What a sublimed stupa it is! 



Next, Wat Mahathat(ワット・マハー・タート)วัดมหาธาตุ พระนครศรีอยุธยา
This is a picture of a very famous Buddha head entwined in tree roots

It is said that this ancient temple which houses the holy relics of Lord Buddha,
was built during the 14th century , but when the Burmese army invaded Ayutthaya,
 the temple was destroyed in 1767 by the Burmese who also vandalised many
of the Buddha images in Ayutthaya by lopping off the heads.
When I was walking around this temple I felt like I had stepped back 1
in time to the 14th century

This is a View of Wt Phra Sri Samphet.


The location of this site is Wt Phra Sri Samphet(ワット・プラシー・サンペット)
 in AYUTTAYA. A Royal palace was here before. This residential palace
 was transformed into a temple in the reign of King Ramathibodi I
Each of the three bell-shaped chedis holds the remains of a king.


A little cute elephant for photo model entwined only my daughter with
its long trunk. But when it was my turn it didn’t do me such action.
It must like young lady better.
We had a fun time on our 10 minute elephant ride.

Bang Pa-in Palace(バーンパイン宮殿) 
It was so hot when we toured this Palace, so we were in a daze there. 





 We saw a lot of Japanese restaurants in some large department stores
in the center poart of Bangkok. Of course we ate Thai dishes during
our stay at this exotic land of everlasting summer though. We don’t like spicy
dishes very much, but I enjoyed non spicy soup with rice noodle several times there. 

I’m sorry to say but coconut juice is not our taste.


I found Japan’s variety store “LOFT” and Japanese s department store

   We were very surprised to see its cut part. To tell the truth, it didn’t look
delicious because of the contrast between it's white pulp and black seeds
at first, but it actually is tasty and has a slight sweetness and softness.

Before we knew it, a day have just ended.

Oh, time flies by very quickly when it has a lot of fun.
