Beautiful shrine, temples and surrounding gardens - a must if you have a long layover at the Narita International Airport (NRT). We took the train from NRT, and walked down Omotesando Street before arriving here. Enjoy!

I visited this temple a couple of times. Each visit, I just take in the crisp fresh air and the blissful calm of the surrounding area, Regardless of your faith, you can definitely treat this as a walk in a very well kept park.

Yes.. Afternoon is fine. The walk to the temple is nice, for shopping you can go to Aeon mall (tax free). Nothing much around.
