Diary....July (2)

Hi, Friends!


Nara Park, which is a public park of about 660 hectares, is home to hundreds of freely roaming deer. 
                        Although the deer are wild animals, they are remarkably tame and smart.Considered in Shinto religion 
                        to be messengers of the gods, the deer are not  caged.They are allowed to roam free around the large
                        expanse of the Park and are protected carefully here.You will be greeted by the cute deer at the Park.


                                       It was raining when I went to the Park one day in June,and the ground was  wet. 
                                       I found the deer signs showing up clearly. 

Look! a herd of deer are crossing a crosswalk
They understand .....the red signal?

                                                                                               Deer! Hurry! Cross the street! 


                   Currently the deer population of Nara Park is around 1,200.Unfortunately, car accidents involving deer happen each year.
                   The 'Foundation for the Protection of Deer in Nara Park' has made an effort to protect them, so the popularity of 
                    the deer has been kept.

                              Thank you for visit.

                                                                               Until Next Time!
