Nara Park (Asajigahara Park)
Nara Park, which stretches in the center of Nara City, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Japan, with the World Heritage sites of Todaiji Temple, Kofukuji Temple, and Kasuga Taisha Shrine all located within its grounds. The park is popular as a place of healing and relaxation with its rich nature including primeval forests that have been protected as the sacred area of Kasuga Taisha Shrine since ancient times, solemn temples and shrines standing in the midst of nature, and deer passing by.
Nara flourished as a capital city more than 1,300 years ago, and many temples and shrines that served as the stage for history remain here and there. In the center of the city, where there are no tall buildings and a calm atmosphere, Nara Park and the old streets of Naramachi spread out, and the sight of deer roaming freely in the park creates a unique landscape. In a city with deep pockets that has carefully protected the messengers of God, there are many unique places to visit. It is full of attractions that make you want to stay and explore.
