Why We Love This Hotel
Location: Nestled within the historical Nara Park, FUFU Nara is set within unspoiled woodland full of playful and friendly deer and conveniently near Nara's most important temples.
Hot Springs: Every guest room is equipped with an open-air natural hot spring bath, an invite to unwind in therapeutic thermal waters while basking in the forest surroundings.
Sense of Place: The essence of Nara is infused in every part of the property, from the locally-sourced ingredients highlighted in every dish at the restaurant, local herbs in the medicinal bath waters, to interior designs furnished with pottery made of Nara clay and handcrafted tapestries and arts by local artisans.
