Heijou Palace


 Nara city was one of the first permanent capitals of Yamato (the old name for Japan) and, in 2010, Nara celebrated its 1300th anniversary by rebuilding the long-lost Heijo Palace. As you can see in the architecture, the people of the Nara Period were heavily influenced by Chinese culture of the time. The palace is free to enter and only a short walk from Yamatosaidaiji Station in Nara City.
