1hr transfer time in Narita enough?

Hello fellow travelers! Thank you in advance for your answers.

My question is: I only have a 1hr transfer stop in Narita (Origin Nagoya) on my way back to the US flying with Japan Airlines, will I have to go to customs in Narita?

Also, I will only have 2 days in Tokyo at the start of my trip, what food/snacks are your favorite that you can't get anywhere else? My travel dates are at the end of the year.

If you are on the same airline and the same booking, then one hour is enough. That means in your case, the short answer is yes. All you do is go through transit security. There will be no need to go through immigration or customs.

The variety of Kit Kats is always a popular choice. You can also try some unique Japanese mochi and cookies.
