This was my first visit to Japan, so I was ready for an adventure. We took a bus from the JR station and then walked to the hotel. It is near Nara Park, and an easy walk. Our room was in the annex. We exchanged...More
General: We stayed here for two nights. It is about a 10 minute walk from the Kintetsu station, and quite a bit farther from the JR station. The whole town is relatively small, so everything is within about 20 minutes of walking, but Todai-ji temple...More

We did not take the meal plan when we stayed at this hotel. However, dinner is definitely served in their dining room. I do not know if some rooms also have an option for dining in the room.
