When you hear the name "Nara Park," for most people, deer come to mind.
Many people think that the deer in Nara Park are kept in captivity.
However, the deer in the park are actually wild animals that have been designated a protected species.
There are so many deer in Nara Park that even the Man'yoshu (Anthology of Japanese waka poems) describes them in their natural habitat.

At present, there are more than 1,000 deer in Nara Park.
In this video, you can see the many deer lazing about Ukigumo-enchi Park.
On this day, the deer can be seen crossing the road to the forest, and going back and forth to their usual spots. The deer here coexist peacefully among the many visitors.
