Customer Travel Tip: Rent a bike and go for a ride around the park and primeval forest! or walk in the little streets of Naramachi. If you have time, take the JR line and explore the nearest Kashihara to catch a glimpse of the ancient Japan. And feed the deers!

Liked: The suggestive atmosphere of this ancient city, the deers in Nara Park, the temples, the primeval forest, the legends, the food and traditional mochi sweets made just before your eyes.

Disliked: Nothing!
