What is Nara?
Nara is in south western part of Honshu, the main island of Japan. It sits about 30 kilometers from Kyoto, and was the capital of Japan from 710 – 784 AD. It has numerous world heritage sites, all in close proximity to each other. Needless to say, as with most things in Japan, it is stunningly beautiful. The majority of the world heritage sites a located in and around the Primeval Forest, itself a place of stunning natural beauty, and also designated world heritage status. Not only is the park famed for the world heritage sites, but also the free range deer that roam throughout the park. They are very tame and a very impartial to chika-sennbei (rice cake).
What is special about Nara?
For many Japanese people, Nara is considered to be quintessential Japan! A criticism leveled at Kyoto by locals, is that it is heavily influenced by government tourism ministries and private tourist enterprises, and receives the lions share of tourist funds and tourists. As a result, many people feel that it has become rather gaudy – a controversial opinion, but one that is held by a number of people. Nara, on the other hand, has managed to avoid falling into the tourist trap, and so is about as authentically Japanese as it can get.
Yoshikien Garden, is right in Nara Park and is stunningly beautiful!! Stepping in through the front entrance is like stepping into another world entirely. It is blissfully peaceful and a rather under appreciated tourist attraction. This makes it a perfect, intimate setting for photoshoots. Further more, they have a beautiful large tea room. It is possible to hire this to serve as a ceremony venue, giving the lucky couple even more intimacy.
