The exterior of this private home consist of simple wooden latticework, through which residents peaked out without being seen by outsiders. Take a guided tour to see the interior, which features traditional tatami floors and the hako kaidan--box staircase used to preserve space. The home's kitchen displays a traditional Japanese kamado stove and utensils used in formal and casual dining.

  • Nara Lattice House in the Nara area, in the old Nara Alley Lane in the walk will be to visit, is rebuilt from the Edo time in this town, the narrow long model. The same as the home of Nara-cho にぎわい was rebuilt and reopened to the old house. The front of the building is narrow narrow entrance, the extremely rich Japanese style of the wooden fence window to maintain privacy and the wind through the light, from the front to the back of the main house (shop, between the middle of the room), connected to the atrium, the latter side of the dump library, the side of the channel and kitchen, is a typical pattern of the family. For the time being, there are also Nara tours and live information to participate. I used to see the scene of the pleasant will feel the Xuan is the kitchen is very interesting (open the stove and Hall evil spirit?)

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.
