About MIKASA RYOKAN

Nara, home to Mikasa Ryokan, is a historic place which is considered the birthplace of Japan. This important historic city was once called "Yamato".
Mikasa Ryokan is located on the slopes of Mt. Wakakusa, from where the whole of that city of Nara can be taken in at a glance.
With excellent access to places like to Osaka, Japan's second city, and the sightseeing hotspot that is Kyoto, guests can easily use it as a base for sightseeing in Japan.
