Ancient City
The country's first established capital, Nara houses some of the most storied buildings and natural attractions in Japan, with eight World Heritage Sites in total. Including Shinto shrines, Buddhist temples, and imperial ruins, the sites tell the story of faith, art, and politics in the burgeoning nation, and today represent the backbone of Nara tourism. Pristine temple gardens and an ancient, sprawling forest provide the natural sites to go with all the manmade jewels, with the latter supporting a large population of deer, a symbol of the city. Customize your holiday with our Japan trip website to create an adventure that suits you.

Where to stay in Nara

The historic city of Nara has a welcome number of accommodations for an urban area of its importance and popularity. Close to the main train station stand the main high-rise hotels in the city, all towering over the commercial and modern district that greets train travelers on arrival. To the east, things get a little more luxurious, with hotels close to Nara Park particularly well-appointed and rich in additional facilities. Standard hotels stand in a cluster to the southeast of the old palace ruins, while a number of pleasant, no-frills guesthouses can be found in the residential suburbs.
