The area from Kintetsu Nara Station to JR Nara Station is full of unique shops and is a good place for eating and shopping. When you walk southward about 15 minutes from Kintetsu Nara Station thorough the shopping mall, you will arrive at Naramachi. This area around World Heritage Gango-ji Temple was a merchant district that prospered along with the temple. Common people’s houses that were built from the 19th to 20th centuries still remain, surrounded by narrow allays, which creates a pleasing nostalgic atmosphere.
