Nightlife in Nara may be outshone by that of its bigger neighbours like Osaka and Kyoto. However, in line with the small and ancient capital’s heritage, a relaxed izakaya or bar is within easy reach, serving great Japanese beer and sake. 

    In the heart of Nara, there’s a good selection of classy bars that are perfect for unwinding after a day’s out exploring the city’s wonderful temples. The shopping street near Kintetsu Nara Station and Naramachi Street are good places to start.
