Nara vs. Arashiyama

Jump to last reply

Have one day-trip to spend outside of Kyoto during our upcoming trip in November and was all set to do Nara that day. But reading a bit about Arashiyama now and maybe, as a result, having second thoughts about Nara.

My main issue with Nara is: what takes up an entire day there? Admittedly, after seeing what'll probably be 100 temples by the time we get there, I'm not sure another day filled with temple excursions will be my cup of tea. The deer: definitely interesting! But I question if that's the only draw for me, is it worth going to Nara?

Reading about Arashiyama it seems like a big change in scenery and something perhaps more our speed. Beautiful water scenery, bamboo forests...and monkeys!! :)

Curious to get the opinions of folks who have been to both places.
