Places to Visit in Nara

We've got all the sightseeing info you require for your impending trip to Nara. Grab your travel planner and get ready to start filling that itinerary.

If you only had a day in Nara, you'd want to spend it at the Todaiji Temple. A renowned attraction that you won't soon forget, it brings in scores of visitors from far and wide.

Boasting tourist attractions like Nara Park and the Kofuku-ji Shrine, you'll never have a dull moment in this dynamic city. Once you've finished checking out those, continue on to the Yakushi-ji Temple and Kasuga Shrine.

If you could do with some personal reflection, drop by Kasugayama Hill Primeval Forest. You're sure to feel more at peace after looking around this hallowed place. Adventurers in this destination have an abundance of choice. If you're sick of dining indoors, grab some takeaway and enjoy a revitalizing lunch in the fresh air at Ukimido Park. Still got some time on your hands? You don't need to know your Michelangelos from your Boticellis to wander the halls of Nara City Museum of Photography. It boasts a thought-provoking collection of works that'll engage your interest and let your imagination run wild.

Securing cozy places to stay is key when planning cheap vacations or luxury getaways. Fortunately, Nara has approximately 34 accommodations, so you'll have heaps to choose from.

After a long-haul flight, there's nothing quite like relaxing in a flashy room and ordering some room service. See what tasty treats await you at the Tsukihitei Ryokan (158 Kasugano-Cho) or the Nara Hotel (1096 Takabatake-cho). If you're after more budget-friendly options, the NARAMACHI HOSTEL & RESTAURANT (939-1, Takabatakecho) or the Guesthouse Narakomachi (41-2 Surugamachi) could be more your style.

Nara is home to the Todaiji Temple. If you want to stay close to this unmissable attraction, the Wakasa Bettei is just 0.3 miles (0.5 km) away. Another sought-after option is the Asukasou, which is 0.7 miles (1.1 km) away.
