Deer’s breeding season is coming along in mid-May! The facility called ‘Rokuen’ usually keeps mothers and fawns in a safe place during this season to protect their welfare. However, between June 1 and 30, it will be welcoming all guests to give a sneak peek of mother deer and babies. Drop by and enjoy watching cute little ones walking around with mums, when visiting Kasugataisha Shrine!

Unlike most deer in Japan, Nara’s deer live unusually close to humans. Because of this, it is necessary for us to exercise great caution in how we interact with the deer, in order to continue to coexisting peacefully with the deer of Nara Park.
・Do not give human food to deer except deer crackers (shika senbei). Please dispose of your trash properly in the bins, or carry it home with you.
・Do not tease or trick deer with the senbei, as they may get frustrated and attack you.
