What a beautiful park!
The best part about this park and location is of course the Deer.
I was staying in Osaka which is a few train rides away, let's say an hour or so away. Google maps will be your best friend to help...More
This park is really worth to visit. There are many temples to see, nice environment to walk and the deers...omg the deers. It was one of the weirdest experiences to be this close to so many of them. But it was really cool. But watch...More
Nara park is really a place being worth of visiting. One can easily spend several hours there, half a day is good recommendation. There are about 1200 almost tame deers, which live in the park. The deers themselves are worth of seeing plus of course...More
Our private tour guide, who lives in Nara, told us the best activity in the entire city would be a tour of Nara Park. Impressive ancient temples and lantern-lined pathways made for a charming walk within this massive sanctuary.

There is a special bus that conducts you from the bullet train station directly to Nara park entry. However even within the park it's a fair amount of walking. To see the Buddha temple too it's a walk, although the deer are everywhere. One could look at wheel chair options, all areas have wheelchair access.
It never closes (open 24/7) as there are no gates holding deers in or out however shops, other buildings and temple surrounding or in the park may close anywhere between 4.30pm to 6pm depending on what it is
