SACRED DEER  AT NARA PARK IN JAPAN 

The ancient city of Nara is known for its beautiful temples, 15m-high Bronze Buddha statue & sacred deer that bow for biscuits at the Nara Park

It is adorable to see them wandering in Nara Park

The legend goes that one of the four gods of Kasuga Shrine visited Mount Mikasa, located in Nara on a white deer 

Since then these deer are considered sacred animals

You can feed them shika senbei (special rice biscuits) sold by vendors throughout the park.

Todai-ji Temple, one of the largest wooden structures in the world, is also located on the grounds of Nara Park

Don't forget to leave a wish or a prayer at the Nara temple

Walk along a lantern-lined path to visit Kasuga Taisha, one of Japan’s most celebrated shrines
