Re: 6hrs layover at narita n plan to go narita city

Hihi!

Just want to confirm that what I have plan is do-able.

I am arriving on 130pm at narita airport and next flight at 8pm. That makes a 6.5hrs layover! I done my research and seems that I can do a short tour to the nearby narita city.

2pm - 230pm out of custom. Look for Kensei line to take train to Narita city.

230pm reach narita city

230-6pm narita temple and sight seeing. Aeon mall if time permits

6-630 train back to airport

630 check in

Qns:

1) bf's first time to japan n is looking forward to some local delights. Anyone has any recommendation?

2) is the narita airport enough to keep us entertain for 6.5hrs? Seems that the airport has renovated and there are new shopping?

3) how much ¥ shd I bring? Are there entrance fee for the sightseeing places? 100USD worth is more than enough I suppose?

Thanks everyone!

Cheers!

As long as flight is on time and you have the right visa (if any), then you schedule looks good.

There are some really good Eel restaurants along the walk to Narita-san. The kill/clean and cook the eel right in front of you and it tastes great.

Just remember on the way back to Narita airport, the security check just after you get off the train can take time.

As far as staying at the airport for the 6hrs - there are an adequate number of restaurants/shops etc - but nothing overly special (especially compared to Changi)

You definitely have enough time to go into Narita city so your plans to leave the airport are fine. It certainly beats staying at the airport for a number of hours.

If you were through-checked for your onward flight so all you have to do is get to the gate upon your return. Getting back to NRT somewhere between 6:30 to 6:45pm should be fine. Allow 30 minutes for outbound immigration.

Cooked Unagi Eel is indeed good along the pilgrimage road to Naritasan Shinshoji Temple from Keisei/JR Narita Stations.

Narita Airport is known to be a bit boring place. Going to Naritasan Shinshoji Temple and its pilgrimage road should be a much better way to spend your 5-6 hours.

There is shuttle bus from Keisei Narita (City) Station to AEON Mall and AEON mall to/from Narita Airport terminals.

I think Naritasan Shinshoji Temple is admission free for the most part. 100USD worth of yen should be fine for access, Unagi lunch treat (it could change your whole conception about eels), seeing around temple, and buying small souvenirs.
