Departure & Return
Meet your guide in front of the ticket gates at JR Nara Station. JR Nara Station only has central ticket gates. Just come out, and find NaraWalk guide with a white flag!
We usually finish at Kofukuji Temple. Walking from here to JR Nara Station is about 20 min, to Kintetsu Nara Station 5 min, to a bus stop heading to JR Nara Station 3 min, and to the nearest shopping and dining area 3 min.
During June to September, we may not go to Kofukuji Temple but end the tour at Todaiji Temple to prevent heatstroke. Only on cooler days we would go to Kofukuji Temple. Within 10 min walking distance, there are restaurants, souvenir shops, Nara National Museum and a bus stop heading back to JR/Kintetsu Nara Station. Todaiji Temple is right next to the green of Nara Park, people who like deer might prefer ending the tour here irrelevant to heatstroke.
