This woman in the Japanese class whom had visited Japan said that she went to a park where they deer were taught to bow, or something of that sort, maybe I'm recalling what she said incorrectly but i dont think so. Where is that? I have to make sure I see that one day.

Bowing deer? o_O;;

I've never heard of that, but she may have been making a joke. If they were going to teach deer to bow, then they would probably do it in Nara Town.

They say that about the deer in Nara. I always assumed it was just their natural behavior to bob their heads.
