    Lovely well maintained park with free entrance, pond with traditional goldfish, incredibly stylish tea house and a garden of camellias. Was formerly the territory of a neighbouring convent, from the beginning of the 20 century was private park. The tea house is dedicated to one of the Prince, who was here a monk. Very nice walk in the alleys, people a bit, many colors in September was perfect weather and so comfortable that we did not want to leave

    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.

    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.

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.
