The Japanese city of Nara attracts many tourists every summer: in the evenings here in the park at least six hundred spotted deer. After lying on the grass for about an hour, the animals disperse along until the next evening.
The Japanese themselves call Naru the deer city, and unusual evening meetings – shikadamaji (translated from Japanese as “meeting place deer “). In the forested area there are about 1400 sika deer, they are completely tame, willingly walk around the city and beg for sweets passersby.
What attracts hundreds of animals to come at the same time, with half past six to half past seven in the same place – on the green lawn opposite the city’s National Museum? There is no single answer to this question. More or less acceptable version – deer come to cool to the large located here ventilation hatch – also does not stand up to criticism. Shikadamaji is a mystery, and deer have complete right.
