Take a leisurely stroll through the townscape that retains the vestiges of the Edo and Meiji eras

The area centered around former Gango-ji Temple (World Heritage) is called “Nara-Machi.” Machiya (homes) with thick, wooden latticework and temples show you the lives of ordinary people and cultures from the end of the Edo Period to the Meiji Period. Be sure to stop by the archive, museum, and other interesting facilities, and enjoy a leisurely walk around Nara-Machi.
