Must Visit DEER PARK in Japan – NARA


Nara, one of the oldest town of japan, located less than one hour from Kyoto and Osaka. And right now we are heading towards Nara from Kyoto and that’s roughly around 40 kilometer. And we have been driving around 450 kilometer from Tokyo to Kyoto. And finally we will soon be arriving at Nara. The Nara town still remains full of historic treasures, including some of Japan’s oldest and largest temples. And of course you can see a lot of deer!!

These sika deer lives around the hill of Nara. Every day they roam around one of the most sacred places on Japan. The Temple is the largest wooden building in Japan large enough to hold 15-meter statues of Buddha, it is visited by thousands of pilgrims and the deer’s are allowed in because they are believed to be the messengers of god. The deer even bows its head down, as if to say hello to the visitor.

Legends have to say the god arrived at the shrine of Nara, riding on back of the deer and till today the deer is believed to be sacred here in Nara

These deer have gotten so used to the presence of tourists that they’ve come to see tourists as a source of food. While you can buy deer crackers for around 150Yen.When they had enough biscuits they head back to home in the forest
