A day in Nara, Japan

To avoid the rush hour, we started lunch earlier at the famous eel restaurant, Edogawa Naramachi. I started my adventures with the deep fried eel bone, followed by the grilled unagi.

The deep fried eel bone had not much flavor besides the crunchiness. The grilled unagi was tender, coated with sweet basting sauce. I really like the sweet sauce over the steamed rice.

The next adventure was walking around the Nara-koen Park, holding a stack of deer crackers. Deers are everywhere, and they are smart deers! If they see crackers in your hands they will chase you. Some of them were very aggressive, I ended throwing all my crackers on the ground.

After experiencing the deers feeding, we walked towards the must-see Todai-ji Temple.

Prior to entering the temple, visitors burning the incense sticks, believing incense used to drive away negativity and to bring good fortune.
