Nara is a great little town and this food and drink tour really does it justice, walking through the really atmospheric old quarter sampling its homegrown sake, beer, sushi and ramen. I had a fun afternoon exploring with Remi, a Frenchman who lives here, speaks fluent English and really knows his stuff. If I'd have had more time I'd have done one of his bike tours too.
