Jumped on the train for a day trip to Nara. It's one of the oldest cities in Japan. I was so happy we made a trip here even if only for the day. I loved walking around in Nara and going inside the different shops.
I never heard of pressed sushi until we were in Nara. I saw shops in Nara selling it. I was curious to try it so we went inside a shop and we got a free tasting and tea! It was amazing! I had the mackerel and it was delicious! I loved the presentation of the food while it was served to us! Only in Japan. We ended up buying a box of mackerel to take back to Osaka with us.
Nara has tons of deers roaming around. It was insane! But you have to be careful because they can get violent. I kept my distance while getting my photo taken. You will see stands to buy biscuits for the deers. I was tempted to buy it but decided against it after watching people getting swarmed by the deers because of it. I didn't want to get attacked. The deers really loves biscuits but they are very aggressive so just be careful! They will follow you and try so hard to get those darn food!
We witnessed a deer stampede while walking around. You will see signs everywhere cautioning tourists about the deers. At least, the antlers from all the deers have been removed so it's a lot safer!
