Nara CouchSurfing

welcome, the ones who live in Nara, or ones who love Nara!
you may have heard of Nara already, but there are tons
of wonderful places from tombs to travelers'
cafe in old style Naramachi;)
There are three world hearitages here, the complex of temples and shrines from 1300 years ago(Todaiji, Kufukuji, Gangoji, Yakushiji, Toshodaiji, Kasuga Taisha) in the ancient palace site, the oldest
wooden temple(Horyuji), the monk's training path in
deep mountain(Kumano Kodo) and medieval woods.

Nara is so early bird that everything closes at 5 or 6pm, and there are only karaoke places and some bars around afterwards;)
If you wanna experience Japanese culture, I recommend you to stay in Nara and live like a monk;p

You can find some pure Japanese stuff here since the palace and culture had been moved to Kyoto after 74 years of Nara palce era.
