After leaving Koya-san and our friendly monks, we headed out to Nara, which houses a giant Buddha. The temple was surrounded by more friendly deer, although these were a bit more aggressive and tended to eat maps right out of people’s hands. Nearby vendors sold deer treats to tourists.

After we left Nara, we got on-board the Shinkansen headed to Hakone, the city of hot springs, for a peaceful, relaxing end to our journey. Only, our train never made it…
