Nara Park: Deer free under the cherry blossoms

Nara Park is located at the foot of Mount Wakakakusa, close to historical and cultural sites such as the Great Buddha of Todaiji, Kasuga Taisha and Kofukuji.

With over 1,300 wild plum deer domesticated, the park is well known for its cherry blossom gardens and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Japan, making it the perfect place to visit when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. With a total area of over 500 hectares, the vast land is mostly wooded, so close to 2,000 cherry trees have been planted in the open areas and the park has been chosen as one of the “10 best cherry blossom spots” in Japan.
