NARITA is currently the Airport we fly into when our passengers are wanting to visit Tokyo/Japan.
It is a small little village but has a very authentic vibe about it, especially if you submerse yourself in the temple and garden surrounds.
Kimono’s & Cherry Blossoms
Cherry Blossoms in Tokyo generally come out from Late March to Early April every year.
We were lucky enough to be there over this time in 2017 and even found a place to wear a Kimono for the day to make the absolute most “authentic japanese” experience we could on just a single night layover!
Naritasan Shinshoji Temple is an extremely popular place to visit in Narita. It is a buddha temple complex with a variety of pagodas & halls, not to mention the beautiful garden surrounds. A must for any visit to Narita if you have a few hours to spare.
Part of the fun of visiting Naritasan Temple is its store lined approach, the Omotesando Road Strip. Stretching over the entire distance from the railway station to the temple, Naritasan’s Omotesando is a lively street lined by numerous restaurants and stores, that have been selling traditional crafts, foods and souvenirs to tourists for centuries.
