Nara Hotel / Nara Nara・Ikaru・Tenri 24


The Nara hotel started in 1909 and has over a century old historical heritage. Since the very beginning as a representative guesthouse, our hospitality has been enjoyed by many notable guests from all around the world. We have had many distinguished guests and public figures such as Ogai Mori, Helen Keller, Charles Chaplin, etc.

Antique furniture, made from cypress and with a taste of Momoyama culture (1573–1615) is set out in the main building that has been designed by Kingo Tatsuko who is the well-known architect of the Tokyo station. 

The new building, built in 1984, is a great place to enjoy the soothing atmosphere in peace and tranquility amongst nature.
The restaurant Mikasa offers superb experiences. Its 100 years legacy ensures the finest tastes and will make you feel special.

The restaurant started in the same year as the hotel. Many state guests have visited and appreciated the fine French cuisine. Preparing delicious meals with select ingredients along with the delicious sauces and dressings bring out the real fragrances and flavors of the food. This is a restaurant where you can enjoy many treasures.

After the luxurious dinner, please visit "the bar" which is a very romantic place. You can enjoy the highest quality alcohol or chose from a wide selection of cocktails and cigars from all around the world. The old fashioned ambiance will surely warm your heart.

Nara Hotel, in keeping with its proud 100 year old legacy, invites you to experience our hospitality.

I was able to stay at my favorite hotel and it was wonderful. However, I waited a little for guidance at the time of check-in, but there was no guidance to the chair, and the foreigner gave me a hard explanation, but it was difficult to hear. Also, when I checked out the hotel bus in the morning and waited for it, I told the person who wanted to get on the bus and told me that the person told the male employee, but I sat down a little I could n’t hear my voice and got on. That was a disappointing experience for the Nara Hotel.

I was deeply moved to explain the details of the Nara Hotel and responded to the various city guides. When I went back, I asked where to buy the ingredients needed for bread bakery in the city, etc., told me with awesome details, and contacted the dealer to confirm it was a touching thing. did. Thanks to that, I was able to bake delicious bread that I can be proud of. Thank you very much. I would like to revisit by all means.
