Narita

To most travellers, Narita is merely the site of the international airport that serves the greater Tokyo area. This is indeed the main reason people come to Narita, but this small satellite city has several unique tourist attractions worth checking out not to mention a wealth of Narita hotels for those who prefer to stay near the Narita International Airport rather than make the commute to Tokyo.

Located about 65kms from central Tokyo, Narita is a laidback city filled with small streets, mysterious alleys, a quaint city centre and lovely old wooden buildings. There are many small shops worth checking out, while simply strolling along the city’s streets is an interesting way to pass the time.

The city’s main tourist attraction is the temple complex of Narita-san Shinsho-ji. The temple is over 1,000 years old and is an important Shingo Buddhist landmark. The temple is a short walk from Narita City Station, accessible by shuttle bus from the airport.

Narita features the usual Japanese dining establishments including small family-run restaurants offering basic traditional dishes such as sashimi and sushi. In terms of accommodation, Narita offers everything from small budget guesthouses to five-star chain hotels within close vicinity of the airport. 

Most travellers passing through Narita travel to Tokyo from the Narita airport. There are a variety of transport options including taxi and bus, but train is the most popular and quickest option for getting in to Tokyo from the international airport. There are two companies offering services to and from the airport: Narita Express and Skyliner. Both train lines depart every half hour, with a travel time of about an hour.

The Narita International Airport features every service you would expect from one of the world’s busiest airports including a wealth of dining outlets, shopping options, information desks, banks, currency exchange desks and duty-free shops. Flights servicing Narita International Airport arrive daily from around the globe and Japan, with most of the world’s major airlines offering flights to and from the facility.
