When speaking of Nara, many people will think of the Kasuga Taisha Shrine or the Tōdai-ji Temple which are world heritage sites. However, there is a secret hot spring facility called Nara Kenko Land that is clearly distinct from the popular landmarks of Nara.
What is Nara Kenko Land?
It is a large complex with hot spring facilities. The main area is a large communal bath, but you can also enjoy live comedy, a gourmet banquet and body care.
Also included is the Nara Plaza Hotel, for you to stay here and spend ample time at leisure.
The large communal bath uses water from a hot spring about 800m below ground level. It is best suited for cold winter days because the hot spring water has a thermal effect, making you feel warm and rejuvenated. Bid adieu to the cold, right away!
In addition, there is the Kids Land, an amusement area for children, for your children who enjoy Nara Kenko Land to their hearts content.
In warm summers, there is a pool available. Enjoy the environs of the resort on a trip to Nara.
Surprisingly Kenko Land is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
If you are a backpacker or traveling alone and missed out on reserving a place to stay, you can visit here and greet a peaceful morning at Nara.
