Been There, Do This: Feeding Deer in Nara, Japan

By: Chelsee Lowe

 

In Nara, Japan, more than 1,000 Sika Deer roam the grounds of the beautiful Nara Park, stalking visitors in hopes of earning a snack. These spry creatures were messengers of the gods in Japanese mythology, and so have been protected as national treasures for hundreds of years. 

Shell out a few yen for a bundle of flat, disc-like biscuits, sold at a number of stands throughout the park, and then be prepared to surrender them quickly.
