More than 1000 wild deer live in the huge park with lush greenery, and we can meet them freely. Some stands sell Shika Senbei (deer's cracker), and you can feed them, but please beware of so many deer getting together around you!

In a large park, you can see many wild deer here and there! Please enjoy feeding them shika-sembei (cracker for deer), touching and stroking gently, and taking pictures with them.

Just after leaving Todai-ji Temple, at the bench in front of a pond. I like this scenery of beautiful sky and pond before the sun sets, which I feel very atmosphere of Japan. When you visit Todai-ji Temple, please drop by also here and take a break.

Kofuku-ji Temple is located in Nara Park. Taking the five-storied-pagoda into the composition, I could take pictures associated with Japan very much. When you travel in Nara Park, please visit Kofuku-ji Temple, too.

It was repaired and very beautiful hall roofed with cypress bark. After walking around the extensive Nara Park and when you want to take a rest, here is the good relaxing place.
