Miyajima, oh deer.

You have the chance to get up close and personal with the deer that occupy Miyajima within your first steps off the ferry.
There are signs posted that the deer eat paper and you aren't to feed them. That didn't stop this lady.
The deer are not shy! Just ask that woman in the beige coat looking down on the deer. She was enjoying an ice cream cone 30 seconds before I snapped this photo. One of the deer stood up on it's hind legs and batted the cone out of her hands as she was licking it! Poor woman. She seemed shaken by the whole experience.
There are monkeys somewhere on this small island as well. We didn't check out much of the island this day.
