    Nara Yoshino-gun Totsukawamura Ohara 225-1

    駐車場スペースがあまり多くないので、入場順番待ちして入りました。地元産のお土産を購入しましたが、2階のお蕎麦やさんは並んでいたので諦め、1階のめはり寿司も売り切れだったので、止むを得ず退散しました。訪問時間帯が悪かったのだと思います。

    Nara Yoshino-gun Kawakamimura Sako 695

    お向かいのレストランには豪華なランチがありましたが、予算に合わず泣く泣くこちらの飲食コーナーを利用しました。ところが!店員さんの態度が明るくて丁寧だったことと、割り箸が吉野杉の割り箸だったことで惨めな気分から救われました。こちらの道の駅は貧乏人の見方だと思いました。

Nara Areas

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.
