    Nara City 40 minutes or so, the last in the road is quite narrow mountain Temple was away. Visitors crowded in the late autumn and autumn because it is at the end of October was almost lost, had tucked away. You can see fusuma fukuju hospital in the Edo period the initial construction in beautiful garden and Kano's calligraphy, Peacock statue. In addition, here known as the birthplace of sake and sells sake brewing using a drinking mother were charged here.

    In the hope of Emperor Ichijo, kampaku-9 and was founded by 0/992 in article, House of Mr. kanetoshi said. Temple, Bell Tower, and Japanese cuisine. Is known as the beautiful autumn leaves fall, followed by stone walls on the trail along the bodaisen stream, but still 10 months since autumn we didn't have, from this atmosphere in the autumn season once again see and want. Recommend a car takes in maiya town line bus 7-Willow tea alighting, walk 30 minutes from going down the mountain, but weather was good times hiking is good Walker expansion have a good chance. It is a 500 yen admission fee.

    Shouryakuji is the ancient temple which was built in 992 on the Bodaisen mountain in Nara. It is out of major tourist routes and may not be well known. Bodaisen had been a major holy city on which many temples were built in Heian period. Almost temples on Bodaisen were destroyed by Heike Nanto Yakiuchi fire. But Shouryakuji barely remained and has continued until now. We can enjoy a beautiful space and slow time in nature. When planning a Nara trip, why not try to visit Shouryakuji?

    This is a "must see" complex. Don't be in a hurry as it is very large. Preferably, hike in. There are many tracks getting you to-and-from the site but, if hiking or cycling isn't your preferred mode, you can always drive here or take the bus.Autumn ( October to December) is the best time as the colors are awesome.

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.
