Beautiful place of 4 Kami (spirits/deities). Very annoyed with the tourists teasing the poor deers for selfies. Not just one nationality but a couple of nationalities. The deer is considered a sacred animal of the Kami. That is not a petting zoo. Those are wild...More
This is actually a complex of shrines and covers a much larger area than most people realize. The grand shrine itself is plenty impressive, and the shady path leading up to is lined densely with stone lanterns with the famous Nara deers on the path...More
