Pro Wild deers everywhere
There are wild deer roaming all the local parks. You can buy feed for cheap and enjoy being chased by dozens of deers.
Pro Ancient shrine
Kasuga Shrine is one of the oldest shrines in Japan and the head of the Kasuga branch of shrines. The moss covering much of the architecture is unique compared to the spotless shrines in other parts of Japan.
Pro Close to Kyoto
Pro Quiet, serene primeval forest
The Kasugayama Primeval Forest behind the shrine is a peaceful place to go hiking. Although it isn't nearly as mysterious in person as 'primeval forest' sounds, it's still a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of urban cities.
