I had a great time in Nara Park. There were deer everywhere. But be aware that some of those deer are quite aggressive for the deer cookie. They would chase you for that. Make sure you look after your kids there.

You can get the deer cookies (abt 5 pcs per pack) from the park which cost 150 yen only.

A Japanese old man passed by me in his bike and he gave me some seeds to feed the deer. It was so amazing that the deer would bow to you in order to ask you for food.

It could be a nice place for you to visit if you would like to getaway from the city.

Nara Park is an outstanding place to visit. With green canopies and deer roaming around, you are transported to another world.

Deers represent Nara and in Nara park you can find a lot of deers. You can take pictures with them and also feed them! The park also have a big space for you to relax.

Short walk from Todaiji Temple. Many of Nara's famous deer present - seems they eat anything they can get access to! The park was coated with fallen sakura petals - very beautiful, and when the wind picked up it was stunning to watch the flurry of 'sakura snow'.

This park has an f-ton of deer and they seriously love those crackers and any fruit you may have on you and maybe your ice cream too. It has some quaint spots, sakura and is worth a visit.
