Nara Park (a.k.a. Deer Park) is known as a place where you can meet and greet deer in the daytime. However, there is also a great night view spot just behind the park, the grass-covered mountain 'Mount Wakakusa'. Between August 1 and September 26, 2021, a special shuttle bus operates on Fridays to Sundays and Public Holidays from JR Nara Station and Kintetsu Nara Station to Mount Wakakusa. You can casually hop on without reservation.
