Tengyokudo Nara-Honten吉野本葛 天極堂 奈良本店

Pastries

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.

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.
