  • (peaceful music)

  • - Hey, guys, Ruchi here!

  • And we are in Nara, Japan.

  • Nara is a city in the south of Japan

  • in the Kansai region.

  • There are eight temples, shrines, and ruins here,

  • which are collectively known as

  • the Historic Monuments of Ancient Nara

  • and are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

  • The city of Nara was also the capital of Japan

  • before the emperor moved the capital to Kyoto.

  • In this video, we are gonna see some

  • of the best things to do in Nara

  • and two of my absolute favorites,

  • which are feeding the deer

  • and eating the delicious mochi.

  • Our first stop in Nara is the Kofuku-ji Temple.

  • This is a temple that has withstood

  • seven wars and many fires.

  • We first explore the peaceful temple grounds

  • and then make our way to the Nara Koen Park.

  • The park is just a simple landscape garden,

  • but the main attraction here is the hundreds

  • of deer that roam freely.

  • These are wild sika deer, they are considered

  • sacred by the Japanese, as they are believed

  • to be the messengers of the Shinto gods.

  • The deer here are not forced to stay here

  • or controlled or made to stay here

  • because of the tourists.

  • They are very, very well taken care of and well-fed.

  • If you want to feed the deer, you can

  • buy crackers, these crackers are called

  • shika senbei, they cost around 150 yen

  • for a pack of ten and even if you don't want

  • to feed them, you can, you don't have to,

  • you can just take a walk around.

  • My favorite thing is how they bow.

  • It's so cute to see, they would bow for crackers.

  • (cheerful music)

  • - We just bought snacks for the deer,

  • but remember to hide them, we're using our camera bag.

  • (men speaking in foreign language)

  • Wow, look at the motor control of their mouth.

  • (man speaking foreign language)

  • Hi.

  • You know it's in there, right?

  • Huh, you know it's in there.

  • No, don't like that,

  • "No, we don't, just give me my crackers."

  • (Avi laughing)

  • (gentle music)

  • - Three things to know before you go.

  • One, don't feed them chips or bread

  • or any of your snacks, because processed food

  • is really not good for them.

  • Second thing is if you have any cash or passports,

  • tickets, or maps, or any paper, that you be

  • very careful and to keep them in your bag,

  • because they will snatch it right out of your hand,

  • they're very aggressive.

  • And three, keep your kids safe,

  • because they like to follow you around

  • and bump into you for snacks, so little kids

  • might get kicked.

  • They just sit around, they are so cute.

  • And now for the second most important thing

  • to do in Nara, you have to eat the mochi.

  • You might have seen this viral clip

  • of the mochi pounding and oh my god,

  • this mochi is truly to die for.

  • (men yelling in foreign language)

  • Behind me is Nakatanidou, it is the most famous

  • mochi shop in Japan, it's known to be the fastest

  • mochi making.

  • (men yelling in foreign language)

  • (man yelling in foreign language)

  • Look at the line, like that,

  • there's actually one person to just control

  • the line, it's actually pretty crazy here.

  • We got a set of three for 490 yen,

  • which is about 2.50 bucks.

  • - [Avi] Looks great.

  • - Mochi is a traditional Japanese sweet

  • that is made by pounding glutinous rice

  • and it usually has a sweet filling like red bean

  • and it's coated with soybean powder.

  • (gentle music)

  • (crowd chattering) (child coughing)

  • Seriously, best mochi ever.

  • (child coughing)

  • (people yelling in foreign language)

  • The rice is so chewy and stretchy

  • and yet it's soft and there's so much red bean

  • inside, look.

  • Oh my god, I love the soybean powder outside,

  • it adds so much.

  • Just, it's awesome.

  • - We got back in the line, because it was so good.

  • This is such a nice mochi.

  • This is one of the best mochis I've ever had.

  • It's kind of cold, it's not hard,

  • and the red bean and soy works well together

  • and it's perfect.

  • - Mochi!

  • If you want to see the mochi pounding,

  • the best time to see it is at 11 a.m.,

  • you can also see it later in the day

  • at around 2 p.m., but it's just a matter of luck

  • sometimes, they run out and they make

  • a fresh batch and sometimes they don't, so.

  • After all the deer feeding, it's time to feed yourself.

  • There are a lot of places around the Nara Deer Park

  • that you can find for lunch,

  • but we decided to stop by this Kyoto ramen place,

  • it had a huge line in front of it

  • and by experience, we know that such places

  • will not disappoint.

  • Still waiting.

  • Oh my god, this ramen's amazing.

  • It was totally worth that wait.

  • The broth is so, so good, the pork is perfect,

  • I took all the pork from Avi's ramen.

  • This is a sesame chili paste,

  • there's a lemon peeling powder,

  • which adds so much to the broth, it's,

  • oh my god, it's so good with ramen.

  • Who thought lemon will be good in ramen?

  • And then you can add pepper or soy sauce.

  • I'm just gonna add the chili.

  • God.

  • After feeding the deer and eating the mochi,

  • if you still have time, you should stick

  • around in Nara, because it's one

  • of Japan's most traditional cities

  • and there's a lot more to do here.

  • So, three of the most important things

  • to do here are seeing the Nara Museum,

  • and the Todai-ji Temple and the Naramachi.

  • The Nara Museum is highly recommended

  • if you are interested in Buddhism.

  • Todai-ji Temple is one of the best temples

  • in Japan, because of the 16 meter high

  • Buddha statue inside.

  • And the Naramachi is one of the oldest preserved

  • merchant districts in Nara, which is really

  • great to see if you want to see Japan,

  • how it was over 100 years ago.

  • So that was our perfect day in Nara.

  • If you have a little more time, I recommend

  • staying in a traditional Japanese

  • (speaks in foreign language).

  • That is a really great experience.

  • It's such a cute little city and we will definitely

  • spend a few days wandering around,

  • but if you're short on time, one day is just perfect

  • for Nara and just don't miss the cute deer

  • and that delicious mochi.

  • All right, that's it for this video, guys.

  • We really hope you enjoyed watching it.
