Nara Deer

Legend has it that the Spirit of the Thunder and Lightning made a visit to what is now the site of the Kasuga Grand Shrine in Nara, riding on the back of a white deer. For this reason, the deer of Nara are known as the “Messengers of the Gods”, and they have lived in the deer park there for over one hundred years, serving as a shining example of how human beings can live peacefully together with wild animals.
