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.

  • Extremely beautiful temple with an iconic stairway. Much better than all those other places where tourists are swarming. Let's wish it will keep this zen for a long time.
  • Located on a hill overlooking the Nara, great views. Staircase even atmosphere is. 3/19 is still in the Camellia was earlier today. Only one bloom. Camellias in April is due to late blooming varieties that bloom. Now that I'm Cornel, child lucky cherry blossoms.

  • As you read in the book, views the good location. The location seems to forget the time and admire the streets of Nara.

  • The Temple through the idyllic town, on a hill a little slowly pray to be perfect. Do you have a hard time overlooking the Nara Basin, climbed the stairs to it is. Camellia is kinda slow, but also some flowers are blooming.
