Nara Park

Travel Guide - Nara Park

Information

Nara Park was created in 1880 and covers a large area in the city center of Nara.
The park is popularly known as "deer park" since nearly 1,200 tame deer roam in the 660-hectare of vast grass field in the park.
Visitors can buy special biscuits called "Shika-Senbei" from vendors in and around the park to feed the deer.

There are many cultural facilities and historical relics, such as Nara National Museum, Todai-ji Temple, Kofuku-ji Temple, Kasuga Taisha Shrine located in or close to the park.
The finely wooded park is also known as an ideal place for watching beautiful cherry blossoms in spring and colorful autumn leaves in fall.
