One of the largest complexes of its kind in the country, Naritasan Shinsho-ji Temple represents one of the country's most important religious sites. The 10th-century Shingon Buddhist temple, just a short jaunt from the city's airport, sits within sprawling grounds dotted with many shrines, halls, and pagodas, each featuring classic swooping rooftops adorned with gold and red accents. Don't miss the complex's main pagoda, a 58 m (190 ft) tall structure erected in the 1980s.

Naritasan Shinsho-ji Temple Reviews
เป็นวัดเก่าแก่ในโตเกียวมีผู้คนหลากหลายประเทศหลั่งไหลเข้ามาสักกา ซึ่งใครต่อใครที่ได้มาเยือนโตเกียวแล้วต้องมาวันนี้ให้ได้ ถึงเป็นสัญญาณของโตเกียว more »The old temple in Tokyo has a variety of people who have been flowing in Tokyo, who have come to Japan to visit the city today. To be a sign of Tokyo
外国の方も多く、観光地としても十分楽しめますね。門前町も活気があります。店前で焼かれる鰻の煙がまた素晴らしいですね。あと、お土産屋さんが電子マネーに対応してくれるとうれしいんですが、未対応の場所も多いです。駐車場は800円でした。少し歩きますがイオンで車を止めて成田山へ行くのもアリかもしれません。 more »There are a lot of foreign people, and it is able to enjoy it enough as a sightseeing spot. Kadomae town is also lively. The smoke of the eel burned in front of the shop is wonderful again. Also, I'm glad that the souvenir shop responds to electronic money, but there are many places that are not supported. The parking lot was 800 yen. It might be an ant to stop the car by ion and to go to Naritayama though it walks a little.
If you have a layover at Narita airport for more than 4 hours, I would highly recommend you stepping out and taking the tour of this beautiful shrine not too far away from the airport. A quick 20 min ride and some walk through this pretty area leads to you to this shrine. You get a glimpse of Japanese food, Eel is a specialty here, some crafts and so much more The shrine itself is set on beautiful grounds, almost Forest Lake area and pretty landscape. The structure is a wooden Pagoda and the minute you enter you feel meditative. I have not been to Japan so I felt that this was a great introduction to that amazing country
For somewhere so close to the airport this place sure is out of the way. And touristy. And expensive. ぜんざい for 750円? Really?? The temple itself is nice and expansive, but this place really is a tourist destination so I wouldn't lose sleep over giving it a miss. There are billions of nice temples in Japan for you to visit.
