What you'll do

In this experience, we will walk around Nara Park and famous World Heritage sites. Since I own a nearby guesthouse, and have hosted many foreign visitors, I have a very deep knowledge of this area. I can show you some great photogenic spots that tourists can’t find, and I will also share some very interesting stories about the Kasuga Taisha shrine that I have heard from the priests! You will explore a deeper side of Nara in this experience. I would also be very happy to share the authentic manner of visiting temples and shrines if you would like to know. If you have any request, please let me know because I would be happy to adjust my tour along with your request :) Let us have fun together and let me help you to love Nara more!

Miki

I am the owner of a guesthouse near Nara Park, and I know the area very well. Even I was born in Nara, I haven't noticed so many gems here and there! Now, I am studying again about Nara and am eager to share the great scenery, along with historical/cultural information, so you can love Nara more. For your information, my guesthouse is as follows; > Dormitory room: https://www.airbnb.jp/rooms/17288839?s=51 > Private room for 1 lady: https://www.airbnb.jp/rooms/28235370?s=51 > Private room for 2 ladies: https://www.airbnb.jp/rooms/17720778?s=51
