Nara City was the first permanent capital of Japan. Today, the city is proud of its history of more than 1300 years, and its rich culture. It has a wealth of historic sites, monuments, and Buddhist arts. Nara city became the capital in 710, and it flourished as the capital of ancient Japan for about 70 years.

Eight historic monuments of ancient Nara have been listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites: Todaiji Temple, Kofukuji Temple, Kasuga Taisha Shrine, Yakushiji Temple, Toshodaiji Temple, and three other places. As a result, Nara city has attracted more and more visitors.

The Naramachi and Kitamachi areas have become popular places for walkers, who get attracted to the historical townscapes.

The mountainous area east of the City is known as one of the best places to cultivate Yamato-Cha (tea plants) and Kotoka (strawberry) in Japan. In addition, carefully fed livestock such as Yamato-Nikudori (chicken) has recently earned a reputation for its high quality.

Today, restaurants of Nara are competing with each other, always striving to find a better way to cook locally produced fresh food. Nara has the special distinction of being the birthplace of Japanese sake, too.

Nara is within 90 minutes of Kansai International Airport. The easy access to railroads and highways enables visitors to enjoy a day trip not only to Osaka and Kyoto, but also to Yoshino (acknowledged as the best place in Japan to see cherry blossoms), as well as to the Iga area, where Ninja museum is.

The locations of the training facilities and accommodation which we are proposing are excellent, within 30 minutes from historical, cultural and World Heritage sites. They will provide opportunity to refresh athletes mentally and physically during the break of training.

In order to be in the best condition for the Olympics and Paralympics games, we do hope you to come to Nara for your pre-training camp.
