"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.

Gengo-ji Temple is an old temple. Its origin is the Hoko-ji Temple that was one of the oldest Buddhist temples in Asuka village in Nara Prefecture and was moved to this location in 718.
Imanishi-ke Shoin is a typical shoin-style building built in the Muromachi period (1336-1573) and its Japanese-style garden is also splendid.
Naramachi Koshi no Ie is a replica of a traditional house of Naramachi. You can see the structure of the house and how commoners lived in olden days. It has a wonderful lattice structure through which you can well see outside from inside of the house, but you can't well see inside from outside."
