"Be careful of the deer. They..." Japan Local Custom Tip by dparson

Japan Local Customs: 477 reviews and 616 photos

Be careful of the deer. They are considered messengers of God and they roam the cities freely. They also will come up and nibble at you and your belongings! They're cute, but when one began eating my husband's shirt pocket, he swatted it away and got some warning looks from the folks around us. Just remember they are sacred!
