Summer in Japan: Day 6 - Nara

Oh deer! in Nara, Japan - it's like Christmas here even though it's summer :)

This is our last day activity in japan.

According to local folklore, deer from this area were considered sacred due to a visit from Takemikazuchi-no-mikoto, one of the four gods of Kasuga Shrine. He was said to have been invited from Kashima, Ibaraki, and appeared on Mt. Mikasa-yama riding a white deer. From that point, the deer were considered divine and sacred by both Kasuga Shrine and KĊfuku-ji. Killing one of these sacred deer was a capital offense punishable by death up until 1637, the last recorded date of a breach of that law. - wikipedia

JPY150 for the cookies. Don't near the deer if you are holding your own food they might think its there food. 

There's a establishments near the station

Transpo Computation:

NB. Nara has museum free for all the tourist but we didn't push through because our plan is go back to dotonburi/shinshibashi to buy pasalubong. But we end up buy pasalubong in nara just near kintatsu station, imo, its more cheaper and stress-free than dotonburi/shinshibashi. :)
