“Just a 45-minute train ride south of Kyoto lies the famous Nara Park, home to over 1,000 sacred deer who have learned to bow for treats.
The free-roaming animals are officially designated as a national natural treasure. They are considered messengers of the gods in the traditional Shinto religion.” 🦌🦌🦌🦌

One of the largest bronze Buddhas is found at #todaiji temple.
If you want to pay your respect at the temple, here are the steps you take:
Bow and make your monetary offering. Typically 5 yen coin is acceptable.💴
Burn the incense, until you get a slight kindling and smoke. 💨
**🙅♀️Make sure not to light your incense off of someone elses, because it's believed that you will take on their sins. .
After placing it, pay your respects and bow twice.
You can also wave the smoke towards you for good luck and healing. 🙇♀️

Казалось бы, какое милое фото, словно диснеевский персонаж кормит оленей с рук... мхм... листаем дальше, как все было на самом деле! Эти олени гоняли меня по всему парку и больно кусались😬 а вообще удивительное место, по всему городу спокойно гуляют олени, прям сказка!☺️ @scat.airlines#japan#narapark#deer

Only 30 minutes away from downtown #Osaka , Nara Park is a sacred forest and home to more than 1,300 "Sika" (Nara deer).
Once considered as the holy messenger of God, Nara deer is well-protected as a national treasure to honour the tradition.
Note: If you see a Nara deer bowing to you, it could be a signal of attack instead of politeness!
奈良公園距離 #大阪 市中心只有30分鐘路程，住咗超過1,300隻奈良野鹿。曾經被認為係「神的使者」，佢地而家係日本備受保護嘅動物之一。
🇯🇵 Парк Нара. Чувствуешь себя Белоснежкой, когда олени сами к тебе несутся со всех ног, а затем ощущаешь себя персонажем из Парка Юрского Периода, когда эти олени хотят тебя укусить. Помните сцену с рапторами? 🦖
WHO ARE YOU MOST LIKE? X or K:
🙎♀️Hi I’m Katie, also known as K. My favorite ice cream is chocolate peanut butter. I love the color pink and my fave music is by is @odesza. 🎶 I’m very messy when I cook, sometimes take too long to get ready, often indecisive, even been told that I’m a very last minute person. I don’t like to have a plan because i think it’s more fun to go with the flow. 💃 When I have my mind set on one thing, I won’t stop until I achieve that goal- no matter how hard it seems! I’m a very loud person & love chatting with strangers on the plane, especially cute elderly people 👵 Oh and I’m obsessed with cats 🐱 💕
🙎♂️Hi, I’m Xavier, also known as X @mi5ter_x. My favorite ice cream is, well I don’t really eat ice cream;) I love black & white photography and Katie says I always tend to get black clothes so I guess my favorite color is black 🖤 I like all music especially reggae. I don’t cook much but when I do, I’ve been told that I’m very fast & very organized. I always need organization and structure in order to function;) I’m more on the quiet side, but always love meeting new people and collaborating. I also love soccer and team sports and will never pass up a good game. ⚽️ #notrealfur@unreal_fur
