When you arrive it won't be long before you encounter the deer, some 3 000 of which inhabit the large central park (600ha). These tame animals roam freely there and enjoy respect as the purported messengers of the Shinto gods. Nature thus permeates the very heart of the city and abounds all around. Nara, city of culture and cradle of traditions, will not disappoint you. Former capital of Japan, from 710 to 784, it is laden with treasures, temples and gardens singled out by UNESCO.
