Imaicho Town Historic District今井町の町並み

Traditional Streets/Houses

This historic district in which a majority of the townhouses have been carefully preserved still appears as it did during the Edo period. It was selected as an Important Preservation Districts for Groups of Traditional Buildings in 1993. Taking a walk through the town will make you feel like you've stepped back through time to when the town was so prosperous that it was said that 70% of the money in Yamato is gathered in Imai.

Nara Main 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.
