Nara is a train ride away from Osaka. It will take you less than an hour if you take the JR line. Totally clueless with the map to real life ratio, we decided to walk from the train station to Nara Park. It was around 20-30 minute walk in freezing temperatures. If you plan to go here, don’t walk. Take the bus. I repeat, take the bus.
Clear skies, cold weather.
Nara is home to more than a thousand wild deers. These deers can freely roam the park. The first one we saw was actually crossing the street like a boss.
One of the many back shots I have of these two.
Caught the moment when this deer took a huge bite off our map. Found out later that they actually eat paper.
Walking home. Another good and tiring day. We average on 22,000 steps during this trip. Walk. Walk. Walk. Will be posting about Himeji and Kyoto soon!
