The following places are all located on the Kintetsu line and so can be reached very easily!
①Dotonbori Area (Namba Station)
Going to the Dotonbori area, you will understand why Osaka is also known as the “kitchen of the world” or the city of “kuidaore” (act of eating until dropping)! There, you will be able to enjoy all of Osaka’s specialities including takoyaki, okonomiyaki, negiyaki and skewers, but also discover the places that made Dotonbori famous such as the giant crab sign and the Glico Man.
And since the area is within walking distance of the guest house, you can enjoy its atmosphere day and night!

②Nara Park (Nara Station)
Meet wild deers and visit the famous Todaiji Temple and Kasuga Grand Shrine in Nara!
Even though they can be found mostly in the park of Nara, about 1200 deers walk freely in the city. You can buy “deer crackers” to feed them, but be careful, they have a great appetite!
Nara Station can be reached in about 30 minutes by train, from Imazato Station.
You can also visit some of Japan’s most famous Cultural Assets like the Todai-ji Temple, Kofuku-ji Temple or Kasuga Grand Shrine and enjoy the rich history and culture of the country.
