Around Nara Park
The area around Nara Park is easy to access from both JR Nara Station and Kintetsu Nara Station. The park is 4 km east to west and 2 km north to south with places of worship such as Todaiji Temple, Kasuga Taisha Shrine and Kofukuji Temple in or around the huge park that is perhaps most well known for its deer. The area of the park includes Mount Wakakusa, Mount Takamado and Kasugaokuyama; renowned for its virgin forests, and, all around the park can be found buildings enshrining Buddhist statues, museums and treasure halls. If you have had your fill of culture though ? just buying food for the deer and feeding them is a fun way to relax.
