Nara was surprisingly a beautiful place to photograph. Deers aside, the street from JR Nara Station towards to the deer park was a sweet place to stroll. The road appeared exceptionally neat, despite the busy shop signs and messy cables lining along it. I don’t know how Japan does it, but the OCD in you would probably approve. At the park, it was easy to shoot the deers because they’re mostly lying around, and only running to you when they see you’re holding onto some snacks.

We stayed until the sun (almost) sets, where the light was nice to shoot in. Sakura was aplenty at the temples, which was quite a sight. x
