Getting Friendly with Deer in Nara

Nara is a cute little city east of Kyoto that’s famous for one thing; deer. Located in the city center, Nara Park is a series of temples, sections of forest and large grass fields that are home to over 1200 wild deer. Yes, wild. This isn’t a giant petting zoo where the deer are fenced up and fed breakfast, lunch and dinner. These crazy animals decided a few hundred years ago that this park in the middle of a town is where they would like to hang out. Which is totally fine by me. Go ahead and get doe-eyed looking at the photos.
