Nara was an ancient capital of Japan, and home to a huge density of temples and sacred deer. We visited the largest wooden structure in the world (which, not surprisingly, has burned down a few times. Go figure) with the largest statue of Buddha. We fed the sacred deer, and then watched the sacred deer behave rather unsacredly towards lots of little children clutching food.
Deer: 34 - Scared little kids with food: 0
The deer were quite enterprising, which we discovered when one started to open up Tanja's purse with his horns.
After Nara and the temples, we returned to Osaka for dinner at a Chinese restaurant with a host of Tanja's friends. The dinner lasted for hours, with food, beer, and friends coming and going almost randomly. The chili shrimp were fantastic.
