Winter edition of Simply Nara available for download now

For all the latest seasonal information, in-depth features on trending Nara destinations and cultural tips and trivia, download your copy of Simply Nara, a quarterly magazine published by Nara prefecture.

The winter edition gives the lowdown on a spiritual hot spring hamlet nestled in the mountains, offers an attraction-by-attraction rundown of Nara Park and introduces the season’s must-see festivals. If you have ever wondered where you can see a mountain set ablaze, or why the Great Buddha at Todaiji Temple lifts his right hand up and not his left, Simply Nara has the answers.
