Naramachi Information Center (奈良町情報館)
Naramachi Information Center is a great place to get information on places of interest, historic sites, restaurants, and shops. It also holds a morning market starting at 8 a.m. every second Saturday where you can buy fresh vegetables and other ingredients from Yoshino, making it a popular spot in its own right. The center also has a shop that sells products from the Yoshino region, including disposable chopsticks made from Yoshino cedar and cypress, local honey, and rice crackers. There is even a bicycle rental service.

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.
