    I went by taxi from NARA Park. It seems to guest drivers said Sea Dragon King temple that destination is not rare. It is the only deep famous. Juichimen Kannon Buddha, published date, visited today according to publication date. Small but decorated with beautiful ornaments over every detail there is an overwhelming presence. It is possible to visit the photography is strictly prohibited, but closer up front. Guests can enjoy a flow of visitors at a slow time. Comic strip brochure introducing Sea Dragon King temple and Xuanwu 昉 monks are also provided a more deeper level of understanding. Source of the Prajnaparamita Heart Sutra model used in the sutras is said and the Heart Sutra age here had said the temple corner.

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.
