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.

  • The Shosoin Temple has a magnificent collection of ancient Japanese art. It has well preserved textiles, ceramics and statues. Each year they have special exhibits that are worth seeing.  more »
  • Only the building of more 1,000 years ago, but I'm still going strong wow thing. You can't truly get inside only the appearance can see. It can be seen on the quiet.

  • Tucked away at the back of the great Buddha. Seem to go so much people because quite apart from Todai-ji Temple. If the excursion kids there about to enter the security guard who was noted. Still there is only the Imperial administration, seems harsh. Unfortunately just was far from the overview.
