Where in the world?

As posted to my Facebook wall, and successfully guessed by college friend Diana: where are we? A city in Japan with deer on its sewer grates. The famous deer if this city were stolen in an episode of Carmen Sandiego. Where are we?

Bonus: the second grate is from a trip earlier this spring. The text reads "Zamami," the name of a small island in that prefecture. Where were we?


  1. Somewhere in the Okinawa Is, that's my guess. Aggie

  2. The deer are from Nara, where they are beloved and protected. This blows my Midwestern mind, since we regularly refer to deer as "rats with antlers."

    Aggie, yes, the whales are from Okinawa!
