We woke up super late today because we stayed out until 4 am the night before. Our day didn't start until 3pm, partly because we had 1 shower for the three of us. We only had one thing planned because we starting the day so late. We decided to go to Nara deer park. Nara deer park is a park where deer live and you can feed them. Everyone knows how much I love animals so I had to go here. Nara is about an hour and a half from Osaka station. But we did get good naps on the train. We hadn't eaten yet, so the first thing we did was look for food. We found a Japanese restaurant across the street from the park.
I ordered the tempura set.... again. I haven't had tempura in forever. The set came with miso soup and a rice box with eggs, crab, mushrooms and scallops. It was really good. I haven't disliked anything yet.
After we ate we walked across to the deer park. I was surprised how friendly the deer were. Also how open the park was. None of the deer I saw had horns, which I guess can be a good thing for visitors safety.
We bought some deer food which was about $1 and found some deer to feed. I only started to unwrap the paper on the food and they were already coming towards me. They were very cute and friendly. They eat right out of your hand.
I tried so hard to get a good selfie with the deer but they do not like to stay still. I still ended up getting one.
After we got tired feeding the deer, we got ready for our long journey back to Osaka. When we got to Osaka station we decided to find something to eat there since there was not too much around where we were staying. In Osaka station we found a place called Eki Marche which is an area of the station with souvenir shops, restaurants, retail stores and bakeries. We found a sushi place because I wanted to eat sushi again. It was a conveyor belt sushi place!!!!
I've had conveyor belt sushi before it's quite popular, but it did not compare to this sushi. I had 11 plates, that's how good it was. One plate had 4 pieces of a maki roll, the other plates had 2 pieces on sushi. So that's a lot of food there. I left with a big baby belly. I also got a beer with my meal so that didn't help. I think I have a problem with food, once I eat something that I like I want to keep eating it even though I'm full. I would have ate more sushi but I knew it would be a bit pricey. All the sushi were different prices, so depending on the sushi you got you could be paying up to $4 for a plate. But my bill came up to $25 which is not bad at all and I had some delicious sushi.
After eating at the sushi place, we grabbed dessert from a bakery we saw of the way to the restaurant. I got a piece of strawberry cake to eat at the apartment. We got home at about 9pm. Our plan was to call it a night because we wanted to have a full day because it would be our last day in Japan.
