“Different from the other temples you'll see - take the bus to get here!”
Reviewed 23 December 2012

Of the sites to see outside of Nara Park, this one stands out as the most unique since it has actually the palace building which is of very different architecture from the other temples you'll see in the city. Do not make the same mistake as me and think you can walk here from the Yamato Saidaiji metro stop - you cannot! The only roads are restricted to pedestrians, so come either by taxi or better yet the bus.

“A detour from Nara's main attractions”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

This historic palace grounds has to be reached by car from Nara park site.... The grounds itself are enormous, and the project to rebuild the ruins is a great task. as of now the Great Hall houses exhibits... But one challenge for restorers would be the interesting railway that passes through it, dividing the area of the palace... no fees collected...but walking and parking would be a bit difficult since they are still on construction...
