Travel Guide
Narita

Discover the charms and character of this old city that is renowned for its ancient Buddhist temple complex and scenic park.

Located 48 miles (78 kilometers) outside of Tokyo, Narita is home to Narita Airport, Japan's largest international airport. Whether Narita is a destination or a layover trip for you, this city has several attractions and heritage buildings to explore.

The town of Narita has a distinct old-world charm. Explore the crooked streets lined with ancient shops. In contrast to the frenzied pace of Tokyo, Narita has a relaxed atmosphere. Enjoy the tranquility of Naritasan Park. Take a leisurely walk among the park's pagodas and koi ponds. Cherry trees and lush gardens make this a beautiful destination year-round.

The Buddhist Naritasan Shinshoji Temple, located in the heart of the city, is dedicated to the fire god Fudo Myoo. Explore the colorful buildings that make up the complex, many of which date back to 940.

As the county’s hub for flying, it is fitting that Narita is home to the Museum of Aeronautical Science. Learn about the history of flight as you tour the museum's interactive exhibits. For a unique museum experience, visit Boso No Mura. This living museum explores various aspects of Japanese culture. Tour a recreated historic street or walk through a samurai home. This area is also a popular film location for historical movies.

Chiba Prefectural Flower and Tree Center is a beautiful botanical garden in Narita’s center. You could spend hours exploring this garden; it has more than 55,000 plants and flowers. The center offers horticultural lectures and many of its plants, including traditional Japanese bonsai trees, are available for purchase.

Learn about the country’s history of horse breeding at Japan's Imperial Pastures at the Goryo Ranch Memorial Hall. Located in the scenic Sanrizuka Memorial Park, this museum is situated among regal rows of chestnut trees.

The most convenient way to get into Narita is by plane. The airport is just a 20-minute train ride from the city. Several high-speed trains link to Tokyo, making it possible to get to Japan's capital in less than 2 hours.
