Amazing for day trip where you can enjoy the best of nature with landscape and animals. There is also a few shrines to visit being some of them the more important within their style in the whole Japan. Must must.

Our first day when visiting Kyoto and its surroundings is Nara city, I thought we could finish it in one day, but it seems my parents cannot walk further, and they really entertained with the Great Buddha and those cute and polite deer.

the park was far too big for us to cover it all. Went through a part of it to visit Todai-ji. Was enough for us. Nice to see the deer walk around, but they can get quite close. You can buy food and feed them...More

We were here as part of our day tour in Nara and Kyoto and this place was our very first stop of our itinerary. After visiting the Todai-ji Temple, which is located next to the park, we came by here for a "close interaction" with...More

They are generally out and about, we got caught in the rain and ended up sharing cover with some of them, which was quite an unusual experience.
