Make friends with the sacred, yet cheeky deer in Nara Park.
No visitor to Nara can escape a nosy nudge from one of the town's 1,200 sacred deer. Believed to be messengers of the Shinto gods, the deer are now a designated national treasure. The deer, who are usually tame and child-friendly, add an extra level of fun to temple sightseeing in Nara. However, you will want to keep a close eye on your picnic lunch and anything else edible or otherwise that is hanging off your person!
