Parc de Nara

Nara Park is a public park in the city of Nara, Japan, located at the foot of Mount Wakakusa, founded in 1880 and administered by Nara Prefecture.

The park is one of the picturesque beauty spots designated by the Department of Education. More than 1,200 wild Sika deer roaming freely in the park are also under the Ministry's designation, classified as "natural treasures". Although the official area of the park is approximately 502 ha, the area that includes the Tōdai-ji, Kōfuku-ji and Kasuga-taisha rights-of-way that are either on the edge or surrounded by Nara Park, is up to 660 ha.
