We went here for lunch after visiting Horyuji and it was amazing. The food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. It’s also impossible to imagine better service. My sone accidentally...

中宮寺から近い閑静なエリアにある一戸建ての一階がお店になっています。お店の内観や接客等全て雰囲気が良く女性が好むスタイルですが、お料理が見た目は綺麗ですが、あまりにも少量で男性には物足りないです。
Reviewed:2017/04/27 美味しいランチを頂きました。
法隆寺から中宮寺を拝観し本に載っていた玄米庵さんを目指して7分程歩いたでしょうか!
運良くテーブル席がひとつ空いていました。お店の方達もとても感じ良く
ランチも冷たい物は冷たく温かい物は温かくどれもみな美味しかったです。
手際の良さとお味、お値段全て二重丸
また、是非伺いたいと思いました。

          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.
