    What to Expect
    Narita-san Shinsho Temple is the best sightseeing spot, where over 10 million people visit in a year.

    This tour starts from Omotesando where the distance between JR Narita station or Keisei Line Narita station and the main gate of Narita-san Shinsho Temple is 800 meters. Along Omotesando, there are around 170 spots such as eel restaurants which have welcomed tourists since Edo era, wooden inns which has an atmosphere of the town in Edo era, the shops to sell hand-made Narita Special rice crackers, Teppo-zuke of Uri, Yo-kan, local sake, and the other Japanese sweets. Every spot is familiar and you can enjoy choose the souvenirs and walk to eat at ease.

    And also, in the extended space of the temple, there are a 15 meters ‘main gate’ made of all Japanese zelkova which is called Keyaki in Japanese, ‘Nioh gate’ which was built in 1830 and was designated as a national important cultural property, ‘Misshakukongoh and Naraenkongoh’, which are Narita-san’s God, standing on the right side and left side of the gate, and the stateliest ‘main hall’ of the temple. All of them are must-see. Furthermore, both of a vivid ‘Three-Storied pagoda (that is a Buddhist tower)’ and a large pagoda for peace (called ‘Heiwa no Daito’) are also must-see national cultural properties which were built in Edo era. In addition, you can find a large pagoda for peace whose symbol is gold shining nine rings (called ‘Kurin’). This large pagoda for peace is filled with overwhelming force. And there is Mandara (Buddhist visual schema of the enlightened mind) which is drawn in brilliant color on the walls and ceilings in the pagoda. Especially, you must be surprised at a fascinating coloration of them, indeed. If you go down to Narita-san park at a foot of the large pagoda for peace, you can enjoy a well-kept beautiful Japanese garden and seasonal nature.

    And at the end of the tour, we will try Sake tasting at Takizawa Honten Sake Brewery. The most famous brand in this brewery is “Chomeisen” (Spring of Longevity), a winner of several prestigious competitions. The water used in brewing is top-quality water that is said to heal the illnesses of the pilgrims. At the brewery, we can taste "Chomeisen" and some seasonal Sake made at here. 

    When you join this tour to walk around Narita-san where Japanese history and traditional culture are filled with, you are definitely able to leave Japan without any regrets.

    I had a wonderful tour of Narita with Shinya. He was very knowledgeable about the area and even had a notebook and placards with extra descriptions of some of the areas we visited. I highly recommend having him as your tour guide. This tour was the highlight of my entire visit
