Nara Park (Nara Koen) Tours

star-4
1 Review
Nara Park (Nara Koen)
Nara Park (Nara Koen) sits at the heart of Nara, a city of great historical importance and the birthplace of modern Japanese culture, located 19 miles (31 km) outside of Osaka. A majority of Nara’s top attractions, including Kasuga Shrine, Todaji and the Nara National Museum, are located in Deer Park, making it a popular day trip destination from both Osaka and Kyoto. 
 
Besides the cultural and historical attractions found on the grounds of the park, it’s also famous for the wild (but very tame) deer that roam the grounds grazing on grass and hoping the passing tourist will feed them some deer crackers (for sale throughout the park). The park covers an area of about 1,300 acres (520 hectares) and requires about three hours to explore, particularly if you plan to stop at the temples and shrines.

Practical Info

The easiest way to reach Nara (and Deer Park) is by taking the Kintesu Nara Line from Osaka’s Namba station to Nara Station. The journey takes about 35 minutes each way. 
Address: 469 Zoshicho, Nara 630-8211, Japan
Hours: The park is a public space and is always open.
