Nara machi means the area centering the former premises of Gangoji Temple, a World Heritage Site. Back in 710, when the capital was relocated in ancient Nara called Heijokyo, Hokoji Temple (Asukaji Temple) in Asuka is said to have been moved to Heijokyo as Gangoji Temple. Naramachi, the “Outer Capital” of Heijokyo, is a town having a long history, which developed along the streets of the ancient capital. Since the relocation in Heijokyo, Naramachi has developed through its repeated ups and downs against a long historical backdrop. Originating in a town of shrines and temples called Nanto (South Capital), Naramachi developed as a town of commerce, and then as a town of tourism. Its townscape of old merchant houses called machiyabuilt from the late Edo period to the Meiji period offers visitors comfort and ease, sometimes making them feel some nostalgia for good old days.
