You will be impressed even though you're not religious. It has very nice architecture. Please pay attention to the details.
If you are religious or just want to have good luck, don't forget to get the luck charm with fire blessing. You can do this ritual all year around.

Amazing. Such an amazing temple,with such history. We were lucky enough to have some local guide volunteers to show us around and explain the history of this 1000 year old temple. There is a regular fire ceremony in the main temple. A must visit.

Free entry to the attractions. Free information packs in many different languages at the info center.
Very calm and serene surroundings.
A short walk from Narita Station.
Definitely a good way to spend an hour or two.
