Approaching the massive Todaiji, one can't help but feel reverence and realize that Godzilla isn't the only huge object to spring from Japanese culture. According to the guides, this temple is the second-largest wooden structure in the world. And it's ancient: dating back to the AD 700s.
This is me, feeding some four-legged Todaiji residents. You can buy deer biscuits for JPY 150 per pack. The food can go quickly, though, as the deer can get aggressive if hungry. At one point, I thought I had a school of piranha tugging at my shirt and jeans. Luckily, they drew no blood! :D
