■ Kawaii Wildlife
A long long time ago, a man named Takemika-Tsuchi came from far east of Japan. He was the rider of a white deer. From such a legend, deer are valued as messengers of God from Kasuga Taisha, which is a world heritage shrine and deer are wild life but being obtained the right of walk freely in the city. The city of Nara is famous for it.
However, I feel the deer here were more savage and dangerous before.
Old deer “You guys, you come to Nara to meet deer? fuck off!”
I must claim that it was such an atmosphere whether the fight might have started at any seconds with the deer who sat opposite of the table, even if you tried to feed them rice crackers.
Then I walk on the approach now, they are asking for rice crackers with bow, and it’s even OK to touch it.
Deer now “I’d like to ask you to use three rice crackers per photo for Instagram.”
They turned their attitude alike. Where’d you go sacred? So, if you take such a ‘now’ I think that the nose big kawaii photo is more suitable than taking cool.
Is that really okay, deer?
Nevertheless, I disagree with the opinion to impose them to be violent. Wildlife can survive only to be the fittest. KAWAII is also nothing but survival strategy.
It is a familiar claim in The theory of KAWAII culture.
※ Do not underestimate wildlife, though!
