An opportunity to walk through a restored traditional house, to get a sense of how life & living was structured in Nara-machi. Peaceful, well organised, practical, beautiful living.

This beautiful and well preserved traditional house, located in the peaceful Nara-Machi area is well worth a visit. I particularly liked the little courtyard/garden in the middle of the building. Such great use of space here.

This place is quite hard to spot, we got lost around Nara machi before reaching here. There nothing much to see here, it's just a very traditional Japanese house and has a really beautiful zen garden.

I had some trouble finding this place. Also keep in mind that this place closed around 5, and it's not very easy to get here if you are coming back from the main park. I came here after visiting todaji and the rest of the...More
