The ancient capital city Nara was Japan’s capital city in the 8th century and has some of the country’s oldest and largest Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines, many of which are World Heritage sites. Noborioji Hotel is designed to reflect the beauty of nature and one of the hotel's most striking design elements is the use of wood and panelled walls that are skilfully crafted to create a sense of warmth and relaxation.
