How to interact with Nara deer?
We continue to speak about them. We already told you about shika senbei, one of the ways to feed them. They are sold by 10 for 200 yens in dedicated stalls or shops, here and there in Nara Park.
Unfortunately, many tourists do not do so well to feed the deer. Take out your biscuit in the middle of a group of deer and it is terrible! But do not worry and listen: we have the technique for you. Deer had been living among Japanese people for more than 1300 ans and they took their habit to bow to salute them. It is what they do when they ask for biscuits. A lot of tourists do not know and so, the biscuit giving is compromized.
Here are the steps:

They undestand and simply go without any trouble.
And so, you can have a good time and a good day while being accompanied by deer, in Nara Park. We are waiting for you, with Guicéna !
