Deery me


We went to Nara park, Nara to see Tenryu-ji temple and feed some deer!

As it was late afternoon it was quite hard to find deer that weren’t completely sated on deer biscuits.

We did find some though!


(Quick deer selfie!!)

Locals believe that the deer are sacred. They even have taught the deer to bow- which eventually we got the hang of. Hold the biscuit up and the deer bow and bow and bow until they get frustrated!!
