Nara is famous for its deer that roam freely and eagerly await tourists who feed them the special cracker that locals sell throughout the park. I’m not actually sure if the that is healthy for them but there are so many of them that they must be alive somehow. I wonder how they all survive on just those crackers; there must be some other place the deer go to get real deer food.

I was able to wipe it off my shoe easily so it was no problem, but it was unfortunate. I think petting almost any sort of animal is so therapeutic so it was nice to touch the cute deer. They even “bow” to you to signal that they would like it if you would feed them.

It is a beautiful place with lots of grass (you can’t walk on it though) and giant Buddhas. It is super crowded because of all the tourists but it is a nice place to visit to view the amazing architecture.

The menu was Japanese and I really enjoyed the sashimi. My grandma has been going there for over 30 years so all the people there welcome her by name when she enters.

This was my first time there, and it is super interesting. I unfortunately could not spend too much time there as I had to take the bullet train back to Tokyo, but I’m glad I got to see a new place I hadn’t been too.
