Wild deer in front of the famous floating Torii Gate
Last week, I jumped on a military hop from Okinawa to Iwakuni on mainland Japan. Sean had to attend a meeting up there and I tagged along to get a little taste of maple leaves, cold weather, good eating, and deer... so perfect to put us in the holiday spirit.
Wild deer on a narrow residential street
We took a short excursion one day to Miyajima Island, aka the Shrine Island, a convenient 10 minute ferry ride from the mainland. There we saw plenty of wild deer roving the streets, shrines and temples, and beautiful views of changing foliage.
