2015. February. Nara.

Nara is a wonderful place, tiny town with a deer park you could have cut out of a Miyazaki movie.

Ancient trees, check!

Just look at the nebari of the big one in the second pic!

 

Friendly animals, check!

You can see some sika deer in the first three pics. They are considered divine animals and the folks around there simply love them. They get fed and the animals are allowed to wander around the shrines and temples.

They even learned to bow, to obtain special deer biscuits. Proof? I’d happily post here two videos, but I just can’t seem to figure out how…

Well, that’s that! Try clicking here and here.

 

 

Temples and shrines, check!
