  • A very peaceful Japanese style garden that allows you to have a break from all the temples visiting, though there's nothing much to see except greenery. It's very relaxing and quiet here, recommended for park lovers.
  • Beautiful garden free for tourists. Small but wonderful to check out for 30 minutes.
  • A small garden but very nice. Free for foreigners.
  • Beautiful little Japanese garden, with three second - pond, moss and flower sections. Amazingly it's free to foreigners, so you don't have any excuse to miss it out.
  • A beautiful garden for a stroll and peaceful rest

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.
