Originally established in the late 19th century, Nara Park is a spacious green area full of many places where you can enjoy and even feed nature. Today, the park has become home to hundreds of deer that are free to roam around the place. Their population is estimated to be anywhere between 1,200 and 1,500, and most of them expect you to feed them with deer crackers (shika senbei) that you can buy from local vendors. Fair warning, though: if you don’t plan on feeding them, it’s best to stay away from the deer because, cute as they are, they’ve been known to bite when angered.
