  • We living in Nara loves 鹿 ( deer ) because many 鹿 live at Nara Park and we believe they are messangers of a god of 春日大社 (Kasuga Taisha shrine, Nara). We treat 鹿 kindly.

    Then, what the guys in this picture are going to do against our 鹿??

    This is one of the scenes of the 鹿の角切り ( The deer antler-cutting ceremony ). Its origin is about 330 years ago. Female deers with big and long antlers are very danger to the local people, so this ceremony began and continues.

    We living in Nara definitely think that all Nature should be the state of being natural. But we must do things like this to live with Nature together. We are always going to minimize that because we live at 奈良 (Nara), the origin of this Nature country Japan.
