Visits are cancelled. The restaurants are empty. And in the ancient capital of Japan, badly hit by the coronavirus pandemic, the ancient temples are quieter than usual.

The entire city of Nara is suffering from the closure of its UNESCO World Heritage sites while Japan fights the virus.

All except the deer. The daily life of the city’s precious animal remains virtually unchanged.

While most deer stay within the boundaries of their spice park, there are some souvenir shops and restaurants on the other side of the park. Reindeer have the right to roam the road, and drivers will respect that.

Fewer tourists means little competition for sugar-free sweets or deer crackers, which are mainly made from wheat flour.

The pile of biscuits quickly ends when a dozen deer pile up around a large trough and nod their heads as if giving onions to the Japanese.

Surrounded by deer, the tourist shows his empty hands after feeding the crackers. These delicacies are mainly made from wheat flour and rice bran and are located near the Todaichi temple in Nara.

When the meal is ready, just raise your empty hands to the deer. They dissolve magically.
