Absolutely worthwhile experience. We only wish we had of found it sooner rather then on our last day in Japan, oh well, we look forward to returning and enjoying the atmosphere again. The historical value is amazing, take your time as there is plenty to see.

this culturally acclaimed and tenth century Buddhist temple is one of a kind. features so many pagodas and lots of tourists. went there during a layover and had a really good time exploring all it had to offer. and it is so easily accessible from the international airport. if my memory serves me right, anything between 15 and 30 minutes is all it takes to take in this ageless wonder

Beautiful! Only wish I could've checked out Naritasan Park, too. Got to see the fire ceremony at 11a--definitely a MUST! Bring your bag/belongings up during the fire (when everyone else goes) so it can be blessed! Not sure how/why people skip this to go straight to Tokyo... This is something no one will want to miss!!

This place is a great way to spend an afternoon. It’s a blend of new construction with centuries old structures and artifacts. There is a service at 11 am that you can attend plus a myriad of paths and trails to wander around between the temples and lakes.

A must for tourists. Place is not that big. You can finish touring in a few hours. Very clean. People are so respectful and friendly
