Feed the deer
Nara is home to a small breed of deer that wander freely around the city, but they tend to congregate around Todai-ji, waiting for someone to feed them. You can buy sembe (a type of cracker) for the deer at one of the many stalls set up along the roads & sidewalks. The deer will come up and eat right out of your hand!
