The legend of Kasuga Taisha shrine has it that Takumi Kadzuchi rode on the back of a white deer when he moved from Kashima Jingu shrine in Ibaraki to Nara in order to protect the Heijo Palace, at the time of the Emperor Shotoku.
Since then, deers have been rigorously protected in Nara as a messenger of God.
"Deers in Nara" were designated as a protected species in 1957. As a company based in Nara, the manufacturer hoped to offer products that honored Nara, and decided to use the horn of deers to make the fountain pen handle.
