Kon'nichiwa! Welcome to the land of free roaming Bambi’s, Nara. With eight Unesco World Heritage Sites and some of the country’s most notable cultural landmarks, this compact and scenic city never runs out of features when it comes to places of interest. Nara’s park, full of calm ponds and small trees, is where the greater number of the city’s semi-wild deer roam free. Once respected as gods’ messengers, these enchanting animals bow to tourists as an implied gesture of asking to be fed, which usually turns out to be successful. If you want to get a closer look and bond with them, you can buy special shika senbei (deer crackers) from any of the nearby shops. Be warned: when they see you holding some crackers, they will come running! You may also want to check your clothes as they will do just about anything to get a hold of that cracker, even that means biting and pulling your picture-ready trench coat. At the end, it’s another fulfilling and cold day that warms your heart with great memories and remarkable views.
