    ならまち界わいでランチをと思い入ってみました。年配のご夫婦が経営されているようで調理人であるご主人は寡黙な性格なのかご夫婦での会話は全くありませんでしたが、季節感あるお料理からご主人の丁寧なお仕事がわかりました。松花堂1600円でコーヒー、お菓子付きをいただきました。味の方もしっかりと食材を生かした満足したものでした。食器の方もなかなかセンスのよいものでした。ご挨拶もきちんとしていただきましたが...

    The foods was alright. The blowfish hotpot was bland. The sukiyaki set was pretty good compared to the shabushabu set, 4 pieces of tiny meat. Services was lackadaisical. It was a bit overpriced, and...

    有田の天然鰻は絶品です。 8000円のコースにしましたが、アワビあり、毛蟹ありで、一般的に考えると高い予算設定のものの中身は安く感じる内容でした。 コースのバランスも考えられてて、食べ進むにつれジワジワと良さを感じる内容になってると思います。

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.
