Postcards from the World: Japan

I haven’t posted lately about the postcards I’ve received from Postcrossers all over the world. In fact, October 1 was World Postcard Day, so this is a good month to think about all the wonderful slices of life my fellow Postcrossers have shared with me. This one arrived a couple days ago from Japan. The sender, Shiori, says she loves Harry Potter and wishes she could do magic. But no, the photo does not show Professor Snape’s doe patronus. This is one of the many tame deer that make their home in Nara Park, in the city of Nara, Japan.

The local legend in Nara, Japan, is that in the fall, the messengers of God, disguised as deer, walk on the fallen leaves.
