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.

Read more 先日9/20にお世話になりました。 今回、奈良ホテルに宿泊させて頂いたお陰で、東京から奈良への距離的な旅行だけでは無く、奈良/飛鳥時代、そしてホテルで現実に戻る事なく、大正、昭和初期へタイムスリップまでさせて頂きました。帰りのドライブはまるでタイムマシンに乗っている感覚でした。私はアインシュタイン先生に憧れて物理の専攻をしましたので、先生の弾かれたピアノには感慨無量となりました。またいつか改修工事が終わった姿を確かめにお邪魔させて頂ければ幸いです。

It was taken care of the other day on September 20th. Thanks to staying at the Nara Hotel this time, not only the distance travel from Tokyo to Nara, but also the Nara / Asuka era, and without returning to reality at the hotel, let the time slip to Taisho, early Showa I received. The return drive was like riding a time machine. I admired Dr. Einstein and majored in physics, so I was so impressed with his piano. I would appreciate it if you could confirm that the repair work was completed someday.
