The city of Nara was established as the capital named Heijokyo in the year 710 and has been the cradle of the Japanese arts and the essence of culture. In Nara, as an international cultural-tourism city, one can encounter the rich elegant ambience of the Tempyo culture which flourished as the eastern terminal point of the Silk Road. Nara has been registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is engaged in restoring its monuments, which will leave them as a legacy for the future.
