Very nice place, it was just like being in someone's home. The bed (and the room in general) was comfortable and the owner was very kind and helpful. He greeted me with a nice cold glass of tea when I arrived--- perfect for the hot day! The Guest House is a short walk from Nara Park and the KINTETSUNARA Station, but a bit farther from the JR Nara Station.


It takes longer than 3 minutes to walk there from the train station!


Good location, facilities rather bad. Beds are comfy


They have small lockers for valuables. Within easy walking distance of all the major temples and parks of Nara. The owner is great and will greet you literally every time you come through the front door but his english is a bit bad so it's hard to converse unless you know a lot of Japanese. It has a nice kitchen and common area. Really good price compared with most guesthouses in major japanese cities.


Lovely little hostel right near the centre of Nara, and only a short walk from nara park and all the attractions, as well as the JR train station. The rooms are very Japanese and the best part is the wonderful staff who are so willing to help you find your way around!
