Nara morning charm

Nara’s unique “Shiageri” tradition since 100 years ago, the Meiji Era.


Nara’s feature deer

We can visit from ‘HARUYA Naramachi’ on foot, and many people say “Oh, I’m glad to stay” when they come back. History is very old, Meiji Tennou visited 100 years ago, in Meiji 40. Together with “morning worship” held at the World Heritage · Kasuga Taisha Shrine every morning from 9:00, we can visit a peaceful Nara morning with refreshing clear air.

At the Nara Park, walking distance from the 120 years village headman residence, “HARUYA Naramachi”, we can see Nara’s specialty “Deer Gathering” which has been held since 1892 for a limited period. When the staff of “Nara’s deer affair society” begins to blow a horn, many deer gather from the depths of the forest. It is a peaceful morning scenery of Nara that we can see there from 10 o’clock every morning.
