Oh Deer

A travel blog entry by tiffanyjo22


... close enough to pat them. They were all around the National Museum that had statues and history of Buddhism in the country. I left the museum and headed towards the deer park out the front of Todiji Temple. Gosh, I didn't expect to see so many deer, especially in the cold since it had been snowing in the morning and all. But they were wandering amongst the crowds and vying for what food they could get. I made my way through them taking copious amounts of photos ...

A couple stories

They are also not just standing there waiting ...

All temple'd out now

A travel blog entry by kimmy-t

... the next day as they were heading off to Korea. I spend the next couple of days eating loads of sushi, wandering around and exploring more of Kyoto. On the Friday night a group of us from the hostel went out to a lively little bar and after quite a lot of beers and spirits and shots we ended up in all-you-can-drink karaoke. I absolutely love Japanese karaoke bars and we got stuck in, extending our time from 2 hours to 3. After we’d been dancing in the booth for 2.5 ...
