With very little time in Narita, I wanted to see some of the city. I chose an early morning walk to this very old temple and it was a fantastic way to start my morning. The street leading to the temple is beautiful and quaint with small shops and restaurants showcasing Japanese housing, religion and culture. Great way to see... More

A beautiful, serene, prayerful place. The grounds a temple are spectacular. The fish ponds are relaxing. Temple grounds are quiet and peaceful...we prayed as we walked the grounds. Well worth a visit!

While standing outside the inner temple, an older Japanese gentleman walked up to me, touched me on the elbow, pointed inside the temple and said in English, "It's free". He then proceeded to lead me inside. We removed our shoes, entered the temple and the... More

First - I should declare that I enjoy temples, churches, castles and the like. NaritasanTemple has a long history, at least 5 significant structures and an important place in Japanese Buddhism. The setting is beautiful; it is a landscaped hillside. It is surrounded by small and interesting shops. Unlike many large temples this one is fairly sparsely attended exept perhaps... More

This was on our bucket list and well worth the trip even though it was pouring rain for half our visit. If you're interested in the temples in Japan you should visit here, it was fascinating and wish we had more time the day we did visit.

A fascinating collection of smaller temples from around Japan preserved in a central location. The wooded grounds and pathways are worth the walk. Allow yourself several hours to really enjoy it.

If you staying in Narita to catch a plane then if you have time visit the Temple and it's beautiful gardens. A 15mins. walk from Narita Station with many very good restaurants on the way (bbq eels are worth a try). A great place to visit on a day trip from Tokyo even if not catching plane.
