  Nara JR Station
by naruto

Nara is a very convenient and well-worth side trip frpm Kyoto or Osaka in the Kanto area.

From Kyoto, I took a JR train from Kyoto Station to Nara, and the trip was about 45mins by rapid train.

Exiting Nara station, go towards the left of the station and cross at the traffic lights. You will go up a shopping street, Sanjo Dori which will lead you to Nara Park and all the must-see sights in about 20 mins. An hour or more if you stop to browse the interesting shops..... :)
