Nara, Japan - Day Trip from Kyoto or Overnight?

Jump to last reply

I am currently leaning toward doing a day trip to Nara from Kyoto rather than spending a night there. We are trying not to switch locations too often on this trip. Our itinerary currently looks like this:
4 nights Tokyo
1 night Noto Peninsula
3 nights Kanasawa
1 night Yamashiro Onsen (Ryokan)
5 nights Kyoto
If we were to spend a night in Nara, we would then stay 4 nights in Kyoto. Does anyone have a very compelling reason not to do a day trip? My understanding is that we can reach Nara from Kyoto in 33 minutes by train.
