Ari & Nici in Japan: Nara - getting chased by deers xD

Hey guys (^.^)v

When we were in Osaka, we of course also had to visit Nara 
since the town  is very close. Nara is famous for its free-running deers.
It is a very special thing since for the Japanese Community safety is very important
and deers that can walk nearly everywhere in a whole town is not really
something most people would consider safe... 
But still, they are there and Nara has a lot of tourist comming just because of them x3

every photographer with his own deer x'D

But Nara has a lot more to offer than just deers.
Our way to the park where mos of the deers spend their time
was guided by beautiful traditional architecture and shrines ♥

But back to the deers...
When you keep walking on from the first spot we saw the deers,
you will get to another park with more female deers (= no antlers = less dangerous xD,
yes, I was a little bit afraid of the big male deers..)
We sat down on a bench and the deers just didn't care at all x3

You could even pet them ^.^

Since the deers seemed so friendly, we chose to get some deer food.

As soon as the deers noticed that we had food, they stopped being friendly.
They all came to us and even bit the legs of my trousers and my shirt x'D
I started to walk backwards slowly but I hardly got out the food fast enough.

Nici also found some friends among the deers..

When our food for them was empty, they just lost their interest in us 
and went back to daily business.. which is basically chilling and being photographed xD

After all this action, we walked to a nearby shrine to relax a little bit.

In my opinion, Nara is a really beautiful city and should not just be visited for its deers.
Of course, it is a really cool attraction to have a park with free-running deers
but Nara has a lot more spots to visit. I hope I can return somewhen in the future..
If you are planning to visit Japan, I can highly recommend to visit it ^.^

Thank you for reading ♥
See you next time (^.^)v


  1. Wundervolle Bilder, Japan faziniert mich sooo sehr, aber es ist auch so teuer und vor allem habe ich Angst mich dort einfach nicht zurecht zu finden!

    Würde mich freuen, wenn wir uns gegenseitig folgen und so unterstützen würden :) Mag deinen Blog sehr gerne!

  2. Die Rehe. <3 Tolle Bilder, das war bestimmt ein schöner Tag. ^^

  3. wunderschöne Bilder <3 ich liebe Rehe!

  4. Ich lese Posts von Nara mitunter am liebsten!! Ich find halt - wie du sagst nicht nur die Rehe toll, allgemein das traditionell gehaltene Drumherum. Die Rehe sind halt der Bonus, denn ich find sie machen nochmal ein Tick mehr klar, dass diese Stadt sehr Natur-verbunden ist und diese auch heiligt :3
