Park

This is a park where you can enjoy the precious historical and cultural heritages of Kasuga Taisha Shrine, Kofukuji Temple, Todaiji Temple, the National Museum, Shosoin Temple, etc., and the magnificent and rich green natural beauty surrounding them. The park is located in the center of the city, making it easily accessible to various tourist spots.

In addition to the “Kasugayama Primeval Forest” (a special natural monument), “Nara's deer”, the “Nagi Forest in the precincts of Kasuga Shrine”, the “Narano Yae-zakura cherry tree in Chisokuin Temple”, and the “Loomis white-bellied woodpecker habitat” are all designated as natural monuments.
The deer living in the park are accustomed to people, and if you buy deer crackers, you can enjoy feeding them. (Note that it is prohibited to feed them anything other than deer crackers!)

One of the features of the park is that various events are held throughout the year, such as the "Light-up Promenade Nara" where cultural heritage sites are fantastically lit up, and the "Wakakusa Mountain Burning Event" where the entire mountain is burned and the night sky is scorched creating a spectacular sight. You can find more information about the events on the official website, so be sure to check it out when you make your travel plans.

Highlights

  • Located in the center of the city with easy access, you can enjoy the rich nature.
  • There are many historical and cultural heritage sites around the city.
  • Another feature of the park is that deer live in the park.
  • Although deer are accustomed to people, they are wild animals and should be treated with caution due to their spontaneous behavior.
  • Please enjoy the park with good manners, such as taking garbage home with you.

    公園內的梅花鹿其實很溫馴,跟遊客討東西吃還會點頭致意,缺點就是地上糞便太多😅

    這裡有賣仙貝餅,可以拿這去餵食鹿群,是個不錯的體驗。

  • 孫玲

    這群梅花鹿根本像是經過專業訓練,只要遊客手上拿有食物,就會群起圍攻,不少人被嚇得落荒而逃。
