  • We used the parking lot to visit Daigoku-den. The guide will explain to you, so you can learn a lot about HeijoKyo. I entered after visiting Daigokuden, but the air conditioning is also effective and there is a free rest place toward the exit.

  • Although it is shaped like a palace, but the museum is quite small so that it can be explored in less than an hour. The guide in this museum is very friendly to give explanations about some artifacts in the museum which explanation is only given in Japanese. Although small but the museum is still interesting to visit.

  • Big. Very big campus. Cold and dusty when were there for a festival. Large information sections, so well suited to history buffs and students, otherwise spend your visit time in Nara elsewhere.
  • Great place for a stroll. Not many foreigners and very views at sunset. I liked it a lot because it wasn't packed with people and it was a nice relaxing experience.
