Nara Perfecture Kansai Region Japan
Nara Prefecture Japan is a 45 minute train ride from Osaka, make sure you get a train where you don’t need to change it is quicker and easier. The city has significant temples and artwork dating back to the 8th century when it was the capital of Japan.
Beside the station
Lots of cafes & restaurants around the station area.
I guess he is collecting for something…..
As of 2005, the city has an estimated population of 373,189 and a population density of 1,348 persons per km².
The real attraction are the deer & the temples
The park is home to hundreds of freely roaming deer. Considered in Shinto to be messengers of the gods, Nara’s nearly 1200 deer have become a symbol of the city and have even been designated as a natural treasure.

Deer crackers are for sale around the park, and some deer have learned to bow to visitors to ask to be fed.

Nara’s deer are surprisingly tame, although they can be aggressive if they think you will feed them.
Nice day in the park
Nara seems like a very peaceful place where people enjoy the parks and feeding the deer.
You often see a couple of male deer sorting out the pecking order.
At your service sir.
It is a pleasant 45 minute walk from Nara Station to Todai-ji Temple.
A peaceful spot near the temple.
The deer are very tame but are always looking to be fed.
