However, during the off-season, you can take a leisurely walk here. At any time of the year, there is an attractive landscape.
In July 2018, the Nara Deer Conservation Association counted the number of deer in Nara Park and Wakasayama. The results show that there are 1360 deer in Nara Park, which has reached the highest value since the survey began in 1955. The increase in deer is mainly due to the fact that patrol cars have begun to protect their living environment, and the number of deer dead due to illness and traffic accidents is gradually decreasing.
