"Pavilion of the Doves", huh? Sounds scary, I'm not going in there. One wrong move and a flock of hungry doves will reduce you to a skeleton in less than a minute. I seen it with my own two eyes!
Those deer may the be the stars of the place, but they are humble and approachable. Especially if you have a hand full of food. I wonder if JV was open at night? My guess is "not really", except maybe in the winter months when it is dark by 5 o'clock. I'd love to see photos of it with all the lanterns lit.
When you'd had enough of those perpetually hungry deer, you could get some culture by watching a performance of traditional Japanese dancing.
For those of you who enjoyed visiting Japanese Village, never fear! I have another group of slides with some interesting images, and will share them one of these days.
