    We had a jam packed 17-mile walking day ahead of us- Fushimi Inari to see the famous 5000+ red torii and Nara, the first capital of ancient Japan. We caught an early train to the Inari Station and were on our way up the mountain and through the first set of gates by 9:30am. Guillaume had said that it would take over 2 hours to climb up and down the path; we wanted to beat that! The first set of bright red gates were large and impressive and led to a set ...

    ... Groups of young Japanese students buy packets of wafers sold for the express purpose of feeding the deer. However, the deer are not stupid, and hang around the vendors, taking note of who buys food. They then proceed to mob the unsuspecting victim, often a female, who runs shrieking up the path to hide behind her friends, dropping the entire pack of wafers behind her. It's hilarious.

    ... place yet. There were lines of people going both up and down the mountain. On several different levels there were areas to buy a small torii and place it with others at the shrines. We saw several families placing these toriis as well as ring the bell, clapping and bowing as they had at the foot of the shrine. While there were many worshipers, there were also tourist and even people like our little friend who were using the climb as a workout. We were able to make it to the top in ...
