Get enamored with the glamour of the ancient city, at a brewery in Nara, the birthplace of sake.

Nara is said to be the first place where rice was used to make alcohol.
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.
Spend an extraordinary day in this town laden with history, and discover the possibilities of sake.

Read more 関西に住みながら奈良にはなかなか足を運ぶことがなかったのですが、酒蔵をリノベーションした宿ということを知り興味を惹かれ夫婦で宿泊させていただきました。 建物の古さから半信半疑で訪れたのですが、案内され部屋を見た瞬間それまでの不安は一瞬で感動に早変わり! 以前は酒米を保存していたと言われる部屋で大きな梁が天井を覆い、包み込むようなあたたかい空気感が部屋全体に広がっていました。スタッフの女性も親しみを込めて迎え入れてくださり安心して滞在することができました。 ゆったりとした部屋で、あえてTVをなくしていることで夫婦の会話も増え普段とは違った時間を過ごせました。 またメールで宿泊をやり取りした際、妻の誕生月でのサプライズで予約したことを告げましたところ、思いもよらぬサービスをいただき妻にも感謝されて大満足です。余談になりますがチェックアウトした後で、街を観光している途中に忘れ物があるとのことで、すぐに連絡をいただき、まだ近くにいたので取りに帰りに行くことになりました。スタッフの方が迅速に対応いただいたことに感謝です。本当に笑顔の素敵なスタッフで心に残る旅になりました。

Although I lived in Kansai, I hadn't visited Nara easily, but I was fascinated by the fact that it was a renovated inn, and I stayed with my husband and wife. I visited with half-belief because of the age of the building, but the moment I was guided and saw the room, my anxiety up to that point instantly turned into an impression! In the room that was said to have stored sake rice before, large beams covered the ceiling, and a warm atmosphere that wraps around the room spread throughout the room. The female staff also welcomed me with friendliness, and I was able to stay with peace of mind. In a spacious room, I dared to eliminate the TV, which increased the conversation between the couple and allowed me to spend a different time than usual. Also, when I exchanged accommodations by e-mail, I told him that I made a reservation with a surprise in the month of my wife's birth, and I am very happy that my wife also thanked me for the unexpected service. As an aside, after checking out, I heard that I had something left behind while sightseeing in the city, so I was immediately contacted and decided to go back to pick it up because I was still nearby. I am grateful to the staff for their prompt response. It was a memorable trip with a really smiling and lovely staff.

Read more とてもよかった!!今まで利用したホテルの中でもダントツ!!奈良へ行くなら、このホテルをまた利用したいと思います。 料理も美味しいし、お酒はもちろん、お部屋の清掃が隅々まで行き届いていて、素晴らしいと思いました。接客も、皆さんよかったです。 気になるところとしては、お風呂が洗面所のところにお水が出てしまう所と、ご飯食べるところの空調が少し効きすぎてたくらいです。また行きたいと思います!

it was very good! !! This is by far the best hotel I have ever used! !! If you go to Nara, I would like to use this hotel again. The food was delicious, and the room was thoroughly cleaned, not to mention alcohol, which I thought was wonderful. The customer service was also good. The only thing I was worried about was that the air conditioning in the place where the bath was in the bathroom and the place where I ate rice was a little too effective. I think I want to go again!

The real pleasure of traveling is to enjoy dishes made with local ingredients. NIPPONIA HOTEL Nara Naramachi has the concept of SAKE HOTEL, where you can enjoy sake from Toyozawa Sake Brewery and fusion dishes that pair with it and produce locally produced for local consumption. Rather than thinking mainly about meals, the chef finishes the dishes that match the sake with French cuisine using local French ingredients to create a luxurious atmosphere that is not bound by the genre.
Also, since it is a counter dining, talking about Nara's culture and food in front of the chef's work commitment makes me feel the extraordinaryness of the trip.

For the dishes, we serve the rich flavor of local ingredients such as Yamato vegetables and Japanese black beef Yamato beef, while complementing the taste of seasonal ingredients, while offering a simple sauce and arrangement to match sake.

(About Nara town landscape formation area)
Approximately 1300 years ago, Nara is said to have established a sake brewery using rice only for the first time in Heijo Kyonai, and sake was made as a gift to the Emperor. Above all, in the old precincts of Genkoji Temple, if there is still a townscape from Edo to Taisho, there is a water vein flowing from Kasuga Taisha Shrine, and sake brewers lined up along this vein. NIPPONIA HOTEL The base of Nara's town is one such brewery. The hotel, which is located in the scenic area, offers the same atmosphere as it was when you step out.

(Regarding measures against the new coronavirus)
At our facility, we will propose a trip that you can feel at ease by thoroughly preventing sporadic infections, contact infections, and 3 hygiene measures as a countermeasure against coronavirus completion, and hygiene management.

Points that you can have peace of mind
Unlike a city hotel, the number of guest rooms is small, and an environment where it is difficult for three to be dense
Since there are distributed hotels scattered around the town, there are few opportunities to contact other customers
 Due to the characteristics of the wooden building, which is a collection of the essence of old craftsmen, it is thought to be airy and has good ventilation.
The style of meals is not for buffet but for dinner and breakfast separately.
For details, please check the website of each venue.

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.
