Preventing the Spread of Coronavirus Disease

It is very important to us to provide the best possible experience to all guests and visitors at the NARA Visitor Center & Inn.

 

To that end, all our staff are taking measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and are following the recommendations laid out by the Ministry of Labor, Health and Welfare.

 

We kindly ask all guests to observe these protocols, not just when visiting us, but in day to day life in order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

December 20th

Due to Covid-19, international travel has sadly pretty much come to a halt.

 

Here at Nara Visitor Center & Inn, we are all very disappointed that we have been unable to greet you in person and help you make the most of your time in our beautiful part of the world.

 

 

To make up for the loss of those who have had their travel plans cancelled, or for anyone else feeling bored stuck at home, we have decided to hold a free online 'Hotel-Stay Experience'.


 

We will start in Nara-machi and take a walk back to the hotel, show you around, check in and answer your questions about Nara.


 

This special event is limited to just 10 people - so BOOK NOW!

See you December 20th!

Our Ongoing Efforts to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19

OZONE TREATMENT

For Your Safety & Peace of Mind

In an effort to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, after

each checkout, rooms are thoroughly disinfected, cleaned

and treated with an ozone machine.

Ozone machines, which produce O3, oxidise and break down

residual odour compounds in the surrounding air, giving ourrooms a clean and "fresh air" smell.

Along with ozone treatment, we take great care to thoroughly clean, sterilise and disinfect all rooms and common areas in the hotel. 

Rooms are ozone treated and thoroughly disinfected to ensure the most hygienic possible environment for future guests.

On May 15, a scientific study headed by The Nara Prefectural University of Medicine was released, announcing that the substance "Ozone," which has a sterilizing effect, was the first in the world to be demonstrated to be useful in preventing infection of COVID-19.

After exposure to ozone of a certain concentration produced by an ozone generator in the laboratory for 55 minutes, it was confirmed that its infectivity was almost reduced to zero.
