Temple
GLS***66Not to be confused with Todai-ji, this temple looks fairly similar although it is located on the outskirts of the city. This area was once considered central to Nara and played a significant role in the city's history. Many buildings possess National Treasures and are photogenic. There are far less people here than other temples in Nara which is also a plus.
Kohfukuji

Temple
Stephen BugnoKofukuji Temple is made up of The Eastern Golden Hall and Five Story Pagoda. These are the closest main sights to central Nara, located at the western end of Nara Park. The five story pagoda, at 50 meters, is impressive and is Japan's second tallest. It is a landmark and the symbol of ancient Nara. It was first built in 730, and was most recently rebuilt in 1426. The Central Golden Hall was still under construction in June 2016. You can view the temples for free but the Eastern Golden Hall has a 300 yen entry fee.
Naramachi

Featured Neighbourhood
宇喜多信家1Quiet small street, here is very suitable for slow-paced travel. There are many small family-style museums inside, where you can see the daily life of ordinary people in Nara. And you can also buy some unique gadgets.

Nara Travel Tips

About Nara

Nara is an ancient city, even older than Kyoto. After the Japanese royal family moved to Kyoto, it gradually became a quiet little town. The ancient town within the city has perfectly preserved characteristics of the Edo period, while Todai-ji Temple, Kofuku-ji Temple and Toshodaiji Temple still exude a strong traditional feel. World Heritage Site Kasuga-taisha, or Grand Shrine, is a great place to experience the lantern and “monkey” festivals in the Spring. Elegant sika deer roam freely through Nara Park, making it a perfect place to get closer to the native majestic wildlife. A hike up Wakayama Mountain offers a spectacular panoramic view of this ancient city. Nara may not draw the same crowds as other cities, but its unique historical heritage and tranquil atmosphere make it an attractive destination.
