The city of Narita in Chiba Prefecture, Japan is usually associated with the international airport that is there.
People not so familiar with Japan may think that Japan’s “Narita International Airport is in Tokyo…but Narita is a part of Chiba, which is near Tokyo.
(There is an international airport in Tokyo…it’s “Haneda International Airport“.)
The airport isn’t the only reason to go to Narita City though.
“成田山新勝寺 (Narita-san-Shinsho-ji)“ is a beautiful famous temple that has many wonderful festivals and events.
The area near the temple has many traditional Japanese shops and restaurants.
Narita is known for ウナギ (freshwater eel). There are a number of restaurants there that serve it…it’s delicious! If you visit Narita, you should try it!
Anyways, it had been awhile since we’ve visited Narita…so we went there yesterday. Here are some photos I took:
