Nara Park was created in 1880 and is located in the city of Nara, which is easily accessible from Kyoto or Osaka. The vast area extends over 660 hectares and is known for its free-roaming deer and world-famous temples.
Founded in 1880, it is home to many of Nara's top attractions, including Todaiji, Kasuga Taisha, Kofukuji, and the Nara National Museum. The game can be fed special treats and some animals even bow to the visitors. The more than 1000 deer from Nara, which are considered messengers of the gods, have become a symbol of the city and are even called a natural treasure.
Nara Park is located just around 5 minutes of walking from the JR Kintetsu-Nara Station.
