Have you met the deer of Nara Park? 🦌✨ Not only are they cute as can be, but they're also incredibly polite! 🎩🌿 You offer them a deer biscuit, and they'll bow in return before happily munching away! 🍪😊 It's the most adorable thing you'll ever see!

Fushimi Inari Taisha in Kyoto is maybe one of Japan's most famous landmarks, but did you know each gate is actually donated by companies and individuals? Each gate is marked with the name of the sponsor and the year of donation. For the low-low price of just 1 million yen (over £5000), you too could sponsor a gate!🏮

Our prefecture of the week is Ehime! On the tip of Shikoku (the South-Westerly corner of Japan), Ehime is the last stop on the Shimanami Kaido, the scenic bike ride that takes place over the bridges over the Seto Inland Sea that connect Honshu to Shikoku.

Ehime's is also home to the two thousand(!) year old Dogo Onsen, the oldest onsen in Japan, which was also the inspiration for the bathhouse in Studio Ghibli's Spirited Away.

The Mitsuhama Fireworks Festival takes place here every year, where you can see the colourful explosions reflecting onto the sea below.

Off the coast, you'll also find Aoshima, better known as Japan's cat island! Aoshima is a fishing village with approximately six times more cats than humans!
