If you like Bambi, Nara Deer Park is the place to be. With over 1,000 wild dear roaming freely around, you will find yourself amongst a sea of these docile, lovely animals.
Though passive, they did steal – and consume – a map out of my bag pocket. I seem to get robbed by wild animals.
The warning signs around the park also advice that the deer pick on little kids and old ladies.
A deer even tried to – gently – head butt me. According to the sign, the deer was attempting the “knock down” maneuver on me. I countered with a camera click in his face.
Unfortunately, they don’t like being hugged as evident by my unsuccessful attempt to get a “hug-a-deer” picture.Find out what's in the deer park »
