During the Sakura (cherry blossom) season, visitors flock the park to marvel at the blooming trees. And to mingle with deer. According to Japanese media, more than two million people visit Nara Prefecture every year. But this year, due to the ongoing global pandemic, the Nara Park has been unusually empty. Well, empty of people, at least. And with the park strangely calm and quiet, the Sika Deer are relaxing all alone under cascading cherry blossoms. This scene is so beautiful that it almost doesn’t look real. The Sika deer were considered sacred. However, they lost this status after World War ll. But after watching this ethereal scene, it’s not hard to imagine them as divine creatures. These animals are also considered natural treasures, and are cherished and protected. According to the Japan Guide, the Nara Park deer are ‘easy to tame.’ Some deer have even learned to bow to humans as a way of asking to be fed. But wildlife experts advise visitors against teasing the animals with food to avoid them getting aggressive. The photographer shared the video and pictures on social media, encouraging people to visit the park. That’s as soon as the threat of the coronavirus ends. Inside the park, visitors can buy Deer crackers as a treat for the graceful animals. Aren’t these photos stunning? Just watching these animals lounging amongst the delicate, pink blossoms feels incredibly soothing and like a balm for the soul.
