IPO tourists to Nara: Illya, Vlad, Simeon, Kirill and Vitaly!

According to the history of Kasuga Shrine in Nara, a mythological god Takemikazuchi arrived on a white deer to guard the newly built capital. Since then, the deer have been regarded as heavenly animals, protecting the shrine.

Tame deer roam through the town and visitors  feed them biscuits.  Some of the deer have learned to bow to the tourists or they simply nudge, jostle, and even bite for food.
