This place is a sham. Don't bother with it. It's out of the way, and there's literally nothing out there, but a huge field.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting the Heijō Palace Site Historical Park during my trip to Japan, and I must say, it was a truly enlightening experience. Nestled in the heart of Nara, this historical site offers a captivating glimpse into Japan's rich cultural heritage. The small museum located within the park serves as a perfect complement to the archeological site. Housing a curated collection of artifacts, replicas, and informative exhibits, it offers visitors a comprehensive overview of the palace's history and significance. The interactive displays truly brought the past to life, allowing me to better understand the daily lives of the imperial court and the societal norms that prevailed during that era. One of the highlights of my visit was witnessing the ongoing excavation work conducted by dedicated archeologists. It's fascinating to witness history being meticulously uncovered and to see firsthand the level of care and expertise that goes into preserving these invaluable remnants. The opportunity to engage with the archeologists and learn about their findings added an extra layer of authenticity and depth to my visit.

Beautiful historical buildings and lots of clear area around the area. Nice for photos. The train line runs through the park, making a nice location for train based photos.

A palace in the open field, it a very different feel. Open, empty, serene. Unlike the other tourist places which are packed. The train from Osaka passes between the front gate and the main building. It should be noted that it is a completely reconstructed palace (not rebuilt).
