The former precinct of Gango-ji, where the historical townscape of Nara remains to this day, had a number of sake breweries along the stream that runs from Kasugataisha Shrine. The base of NIPPONIA HOTEL Nara Naramachi is one of these breweries. A sake company used it as a brewery in the Meiji period, and it has now been refurbished into a refined lodging. A lodging where you can feel the passage of time, and where the tradition of making sake by hand has been passed down, they continue to showcase the beauty of sake. The annexed restaurant offers a menu that goes perfectly with sake. Enjoy an experience that is unique to a former sake brewery. The lodging is easily accessible, with just around a 10-minute walk from JR Nara and Kintetsu Nara Stations.

Cautions regarding the historical building Parts of the establishment are historical structures. The town has many historical buildings. Please utilize the buildings carefully so that the history and culture of Nara can be passed down to future generations. Points of note In order for the guests to enjoy an extraordinary experience, the rooms are not equipped with TVs or clocks. Leave the troubles of everyday life behind and have a relaxing stay. Furthermore, since the original features of the building have been maintained as much as possible, heat and noise insulation may not be of standards expected of modern buildings. As the building is made of wood, sounds travel more, so guests are asked to be aware of the volume of sounds when talking or moving furniture and other things.Read moreClose
