Attracting Deer

There are about 1,700 deers in Nara Park and the event of attracting deer by the sound of horn is held.
 They are very tame and not afraid of visitors. Visitors can feed the deer with crackers sold at stalls in the park.  They really have a healng quality. They have been protected with care for many centuries because they have been considered to be the divine messengers of Kasuga Shrine.
