Though it's nothing crazy, still a beautiful place to visit and just relax a bit if you been walking around town all day. It sets you up for a beautiful photoshop also if you come at the right time.

Found this place while walking through Nara Park. A beautiful quiet spot surrounded by the lake and trees, especially in the Autumn with the colours. A good place to stop for a rest.

A nice change from temples and shrines. A quiet and serene place to stop. The beautiful gazebo on the lake with the colors around makes a beautiful photo. Walk around and have different views.

It is a small kiosk, which is constructed above water. Ukimido itself is not something special, but surroundings ate very pleasant. You can sit inside and take a rest. It is free, of course.

It's only 500m from todai ji temple so if you still have time along your way there, can stop over for half an hour Will be nice during Sakura blooming for photo taking
