FAQs about hotels in Nara

About Nara

Nara, Japan, is a city steeped in history and natural beauty. Known for its temperate climate, Nara experiences warm, humid summers and mild winters, with temperatures ranging from 30°F in January to 90°F in July.

Nara is a treasure trove of cultural landmarks, including the Todai-ji Temple, home to the world's largest bronze Buddha statue. The city is easily navigable by foot, bike, or the efficient public bus system. Don't miss a visit to Nara Park, where over 1,200 wild sika deer roam freely.

Immerse yourself in Nara's rich culture by exploring its traditional tea houses and sampling local cuisine. Try kakinoha-zushi, a type of sushi wrapped in persimmon leaves, or yamatocha, a local green tea. The city is surrounded by lush mountains and serene landscapes, offering a tranquil escape from the bustling city center.

    The best advice I can give is find where the biggest crowds are massed, all trying to impress deer with the same rice crackers that everyone else is trying to feed them, then pick a direction and walk away from them. There is so much more to the park: primeval forests, ancient stone pathways leading to temples and small villages older than most of our own countries, hidden pockets of lost time. It is hard to explain how it feels to not have another human being in sight, finding yourself passing stone idols carved by people hundreds of years ago, only to see a deer eating moss from the base of said idol that stops chewing to literally bow to you. Of course you bow back and scramble in your bag for some kind of treat to offer your new best friend (I recommend unsalted pretzel sticks, the deer hate plain rice crackers as much as we do at this point) and then having it gently eat from the palm of your hand, before you both again swap polite bows and go on your merry way. Then you hear a crow sing from the ancient forest behind you, and you just know: this is pretty cool.

    Nice place, parks, plenty of temples, huge Buddha statues, a little ride by train and you can see the oldest still standing wooden building in the world! And of course the deer! Feeding the deer with the deer cookies is fun and a little scary as they are quite bold and can pull and push you a bit. Good food available as well.

    If you are tired of seeing crowded with tourists cities, come to Nara and start exploring the city. It’s a beautiful city that has so much more to offer with affordable prices. I fell in love with deers and all that Nara has to offer.

    There’s a lot to see in Nara but it is quite spread out. Buses are easy to use though. Taxis can get busy - couldn’t get a booking. There are two amazing restaurants at the bus station. And there’s a seismic company building that is really interesting, and even has a great view from the top.

    It was our first time in Nara. Everyone who goes there must see Todaiji Temple, Kasuga Taisha Shrine and feed the the deer, sika senbei in Nara Park. Walking the covered shopping streets is great fun. You can find souvenirs and lots of places to eat.

    Nara is my favorite city in Japan, so far. It’s small but full of charm, it’s got plenty of stores and restaurants, there is a nice community surrounding it. The national museum, the craft museum, and my favorite the kasugataisha museum. There is a bus #78 that will take you directly here.

    The location is top notch. The hotel is just in front of major buses station and the KINTETSU NARA Station. At less than one minute, there's a convenience store, a bus information center and a shopping mall (Daiso, plenty of souvenir shops, restaurants, etc.). Still next to the hotel there's a parking where you can store your luggage for 500 yens/day in case you are leaving Nara in the middle of the night. Also, the hotel will gladly keep your luggage for free before your check-in time. And the breakfast is top!

    The Location of the hotel is good for going to Nara Park or the Temple with the great Buddha Hall. The breakfast is good, though were still not sure why you can't order the ham and cheese sandwich for breakfast and just the Breads with different toppings (jam, beans, butter,egg). The room is very small if you travel with big suitcases but it works. The Bathroom is also good but very small. The famous Mochi maker and a good Street for souvenirs and dining is also very close.

    This is a very excellent Hotel, with the most convenient location of any hotel that I have experienced in Japan, just one short block from the Jr Nara train station. From the train station, buses can take you anywhere that you would want to go in the Nara area, and to me, the Nora area is the best and most important sightseeing in Japan. The breakfast is excellent, as are the rooms. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

    The receptionist was super nice even though I was 5 minutes late to check in since I got lost navigating train stations. The room itself was spacious, clean, and I personally slept well on the bed there. I also walked to Nara Park from the hotel, so it's at a good location. This place was definitely one of my favorite stays in my 2 week Japan trip and it was probably one of the lowest-costing ones too.

    I'm reviewing this place long time after my stay so I don't remember all the details. I enjoyed the location near the train station, it requires a bit of a walk towards the famous temple in Nara but it's practical when travelling by train. The hotel is a standard Super Ueno so there is no surprise in what is offered if you already travelled in Super Ueno places. I enjoyed the view from my room.

    This was a proper hotel with good breakfast, onsite onsen and good supermarket nearby. The location was great with 2 mins walk to the nara station and has a store offering direct farm food directly opposite (very cheap price). Good eateries around. The onsite onsen is a must try, offering their own hot spring and was especially useful after a tiring day.

    The Nara Ryokan was really wonderful inn, very close to everything Nara has to offer with the luxury of time in the private onsen. We really needed a rest day after traveling throughout the region and enjoyed the proximity to restaurants as well as the train station, and Todai-ji. We would absolutely stay here again!

    Nara is a very small town with limited western accommodations - this was a great choice. English was limited at the front desk so we had challenges communicating although they tried very hard to be helpful. Location was ideal in the center of town walking distance from restaurants and bus stop.
