A Walk with the Friendly Four-Legged Locals of Nara Park

Nara, Japan

The Map

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started at Kintetsu-Nara Train Station (Google Map Directions) and finished at JR Nara Train Station (Google Map Directions). I would have finished at Kintetsu-Nara Train Station as it is closer, but I wanted to travel to Tenri for my next walk.
  • Length: 8.0km (5.0mi) in about 3hr
  • Grade: Easy, there are a few areas with stairs and small hills, but the walk is rather flat and fully paved.
  • Date Walked: 20th of November 2017

The Story

Beautiful gardens, historic temples, the world's largest wooden building and plenty of friendly deer (especially friendly if you have deer biscuits).

  • attractions or points of interest along the way
  • other walks and hikes nearby
  • often a story or detailed description of the trail (I have personally walked every single trail on the website)
