The Nara Deer Park in Kyoto

The combination of pink and different shades of green is just breathtaking during Cherry Blossom Season.

We decided to take a little “field” trip during one of our days at Hoshinoya. We took the boat down river to the deer park. One of the most interesting things we passed was the Bamboo Forest. You can take tours and see some of the animals that live there…..we were content to cruise by on this particular day.

The Nara Deer Park

ABOUT THE PARK…..

The park is home to hundreds of freely roaming deer. Considered in Shinto to be messengers of the gods, Nara’s nearly 1200 deer have become a symbol of the city and have even been designated as a natural treasure. Nara’s deer are surprisingly tame, although they can be aggressive if they think you will feed them. Deer crackers are for sale around the park, and some deer have learned to bow to visitors to ask to be fed.

We decided to take one of the rickshaws and tour the grounds. We hired an outgoing guy named “Danger Boy”. Talk about cardio!!!! He pulled and pushed us around for 2 hours without dropping. Just an excited when he finished as when we began our journey:) Be sure to look for someone as excited about the park as you are….it made a big difference.

The deer eat these organic “cakes” that are made fresh every day.

Danger Boy had the BEST personality!
The Cherry Trees are often grown over hand-built trellis’ forming enormous canopys over the walkways
The Japanese are incredibly friendly and polite and LOVE to have their pics taken with Americans. Check out his cute “toe” shoes! I cannot believe he can run all day in those…..no padding….they are perfectly flat!
The is the Temple where the Giant Buddha lives……,
Me trying to be artsy……when will I stop??
The Giant Buddha. It’s hard to get an idea of size here but he is several stories high….Danger Boy warned us not to anger him and “make him stand”.
If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you know I LOVE doors…..these were enormous and hand-carved with bronze decor. The temple has ornate carvings along the underside of the eve.

We visited in April and got the last week or so of the blossoms.

This is another MUST trip if you visit Japan. We’ve been back a couple of times and really enjoy the culture and the super-friendly people. There is a certain “grace” about the manner in which they live. Quiet – tasteful – elegant. You are made to feel as though you are the ONLY tourist there……

HAVE YOU BEEN TO KYOTO? JAPAN? ON YOUR BUCKET LIST?

Safe Travels, Happy Life,

    I think that everything published made a lot of sense.
    But, think on this, what if you were to write a killer post title?
    I ain’t suggesting your content isn’t good, but suppose you added
    a title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean The Nara Deer Park in Kyoto – Rosanna Jenkins
    is kinda plain. You should glance at Yahoo’s home page and
    see how they create article titles to get people to click.
    You might add a related video or a pic or two to get
    people interested about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it might bring your blog
    a little livelier.
