     Because it could not see the scenic garden fall when I visited a few years ago, so on weekdays though good weather in Golden Week (5/2), visited on the prepared somewhat crowded. (At 10:00 mid) headed by taxi from Kintetsu saidaiji station (about 10 minutes, ¥ 1,300 (midsize car). Return by bus back at the same station (takes about 15 minutes. ¥ 240.    2 bottles/h). Saw the copy of first going into the main hall, 門主 SAMA (nuns) have been chanting, and ask India in welcome atmosphere, made as a national treasure and statue of juichimen Kannon (beautiful characteristic Halo). And scenic gardens.  Beautiful IRIS number ring is still early in the season (blue, white, yellow), pond garden, (is not large, it is also modest) was. Was prepared for crowds, even though most other visitors through (appeared in the main hall alone, on the grounds there is no one), was a welcome antidote to feeling a gentle breeze. Basic was a temple filled with restless always has another public garden (flower Paradise), many blooming h. flowers, suitable for temple and beautiful flowers.

    Empress Komyo kaiki Nara period temples. 11-national treasure juichimen Kannon, Amida Sanson Buddhist statue when asked. To walk around temples of Saho, Japan Road near the Sea Dragon King temple, Temple of bodhisattvas have Honorable at the same time, I think just fine. Ticket special public: 1,300 yen, as an admission of quite expensive.

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.
