This pond is right next to our hotel on the way to Nara park. You have to take about 30 steps to get to Nara park's Kokufuji temple. Definitely not as picturesque this time of year.

Date of experience: April 2016

It doesn't cost anything, and it's a good idea to have a stroll through on the way to other temples. It isn't very crowded either (one of my pet hates).
