Visitors to this Kinki destination share space with about 370,000 residents.

The national capital, Tokyo, is situated 230 miles east of Nara, while Tenri lies 6 miles to the south.

While seeing the sites, make the time to explore Manyo Botanical Garden, a local botanic garden where you can see a diverse collection of plant types. Make sure you bring your camera to take a few photos of the most interesting specimens.

Step off the streets and get inspired by nature at one or two of the well-maintained parks. Two of the top green spaces are Nara Park and the Isui-en Garden. You may also like to try Yoshino-Kumano National Park and Kasugayama Hill Primeval Forest.

If you are looking for some more information about this place, visit Nara Information Center.

On a fine day, head to Sarusawa-ike or Tsuburoko Lake. These are two idyllic places where Nara locals love to spend time at to relax and maybe drop a line in the water. Take a walk and if the day is warm, dip your toes in the water.

Set aside a day or two to explore some of the favored cultural spaces in the area. Savor the contemplative atmosphere as you check out the displays at the Nara National Museum and Nara City Museum of Photography. Museum, Archaeological Institute of Kashihara and Asuka Historical Museum are two others that are worth a visit.

Learn more about the past at some of the historic buildings and sites in Nara. Begin your history tour by heading to Heijo Palace and the much-loved the Kinpusenji Temple. Imanishi Family Residence and Former Kometanike Residence are just two more of the many fascinating places on the local history trail.

Admire the architecture as you venture around some of the well-protected sites in Nara. The Todaiji Temple and the Kofuku-ji are two of the most visited of these. If you have the time, the Yakushi-ji and Kasuga Shrine are a couple more religious sites worthy of a visit.

Take a little time to consider the sacrifices and valor of Nara's past women, men and children at one of its various memorial statues and structures. Two often visited memorials are the Toshodai-ji and the Horyu-ji Temple. Two other memorial sites are the Gango-ji and the Saidai-ji.

Nara Family and Aeon Mall Kashihara are good places to stock up on a few essentials or indulge in some luxury goods. Take in the atmosphere while you wander through the stores at these two colorful spots.

Nara hotel options may be in short supply. Book in advance with Expedia to find the right room for you.

Why not start the search for the dream Nara accommodation by checking out the amenities and rates at the high-rating Nara Hotel, located at 1096 Takabatake-cho, and the Hotel Nikko Nara, at 8-1 Sanjo-hommachi. Alternatively, The Guesthouse Narakomachi, at 41-2 Surugamachi, and the Guesthouse Nara Backpackers, at 31 Yurugicho, are a couple of recommendations worth looking into if you're after a bargain.

The Todaiji Temple is a not-to-be-missed sight for those visiting Nara. If you'd prefer to stay in the vicinity of this star attraction, the Hotel New Wakasa and the Asukasou are both good options.
