• Visit the ancient town of Nara, Japan, this winter

    2011-12-29

    When a city has been a popular place to visit since 710 A.D., travelers know that its longevity is a sure sign for an amazing travel destination. Nara, Japan, is one of those cities that has been an incredible place to witness passionate culture and historical significance.

    Baby boomers who visit Nara will not want to miss the Todaiji Temple, which may be the best example of ancient design and Buddhist spirituality in the region. According to Frommer's, this facility is home to Japan's largest Buddha statue, which is 50 feet high and made of 430 pounds of bronze and more than 165 pounds of gold.

    Dining in Nara is a unique experience to be had, with many of the restaurants offering kaiseki, a 7- to 12-course meals compiled of many small samplings of culinary delights, reports Fodor's. One great place to have a traditional Asian meal is the Tempura Asuka restaurant. This establishment has many of its vegetable and fish dishes fried in a light tempura batter, which can be enjoyed in a casual setting overlooking their charming garden.
