    Nara Pref. Narashi Oshiagechou 1-6
    A kudzu jelly specialty restaurant founded in 1870 housed inside a black-painted building standing on the former site of the Todaiji temple’s west gate. Here you can taste the unique dishes and sweets of a long-standing restaurant which uses pure Yoshino-honkuzu powder, a Nara specialty product. The restaurant’s jiggling, chewy kuzu-mochi and kuzu-kiri jelly cakes are lovingly prepared to order. The restaurant also offers a full menu of savory dishes made with delicious Yoshino-honkuzu powder, including kudzu udon noodles and kudzu rice porridge. Popular with tourists seeking lunch or a place to take a break, inside, the restaurant is quiet, and its windows look out over seasonal scenery. Closest station: Kintetsu-Nara Station.

    Only available from 11am to 2pm and monday through friday, you can only order very pricy sets out of that time slot. The service is so so and quick for the cold salad sets.

    I would say the scones are really delicious and the cake is moist enough. The tea is fine. Other than that, I would say there’s nothing special.

Nara Main Areas

around-area-map

With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of “traditional Japan.” The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture’s treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains’ Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
