Summer in Japan: Day 6 - Nara

Oh deer! in Nara, its like xmas 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. 




bought some pasalubong here just near the station

satisfy our tummy with this authentic udon and okinomiyaki :)


Transpo Computation:

NB. Nara has museum too 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, its more cheaper and stress-free than dotonburi/shinshibashi. :)
