Kanakana (カナカナ)

A café situated inside an old Japanese-style home in the Naramachi (Town of Nara) area centering on the former grounds of the Gango-ji Temple. The remodeled home still retains its old latticed and frosted glass windows, giving the café an old-fashioned yet somehow familiar atmosphere. The café’s signature menu item is the Kanakana-gohan, which comes with a variety of healthy Japanese side dishes, rice, and miso soup. The café’s full menu also includes cakes, pudding, and carefully selected beverages. Closest station: Kintetsu-Nara Station.

Best cafe in Nara for sure. Probably best cafe in Japan and even in all Asia. *Maybe even the vest cafe in the world. Trust me. GO.

Queued for half an hour and totally worth the wait! The daily special was awesome!
There were a lot of vegetarian options too! Really love this cafe in the old town of Nara away from the crowd!

          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.
