Photographer's Note

This photograph is taken in Nara Park in winter four years ago. Since many persons have posted the deer of Nara Park, it does not newly explain, but it supplements only with a few.
The circumference of this park is dotted with cultural assets, such as Todaiji famous for Great Buddha, Kofuku-ji, and Kasuga-Taisha.
Mount Wakakusa is beyond to the east from Nara Park.
The gross area of a park amounts to about 660 ha (about 4 km of east and west, about 2 km of north and south).
Usually, area including these circumference shrines and temples is called "Nara Park."
About 1200 deer are pastured in the park.
A deer is the usage of God of Kasuga-Taisha and is protected warmly for many years.
Since the deer of Nara was deified, it has the influence of having received hospitable protection and does not fear people.
