Entrance of the Yumekaze Hiroba
In case of walking
Guidance from the Great Buddha Hall. Go south on the approach road lined with souvenir shops. Turn right at the intersection of the “Daibutsu-den”. I will walk a little.
Guidance from Nara Station. Get off the station and walk east. It is in front of the intersection called “Daibutsu-den”.
In the case of a car（Be careful as you get lost at the entrance of the parking lot）
sushi that is wrapped in a persimmon leaf(Kakinoha Sushi) There is an entrance next to Izasa.
When you try to get in at the entrance of the car, the arrow points here and it feels like no entry but it’s OK.
However, cars coming out may have come to the front. In that case, I can not insert it immediately. Take the turn signal and wait. The induction staff will direct you.
When you get out on the road, don’t go past suddenly. Please stop in front of you. Follow the instructions of the induction staff.
Why is the doorway so narrow? Is it complicated to make? The answer is that in the past, it was only for the exit. The place that used to be the old entrance is now the place for people only.
We abolished the entrance only for this car and made it for people only. Along with that, I used a place that was exclusively for the exit, so the width was narrow and the car was crowded.
But now it is safer to make a person-only entrance than a car and a person cross.
