Amazing Japanese Buddhist Temple. One of my favourites in the country that I visited. Climbing the entry staircase takes you through the gate to another world.

Not nearly as dense with tourists as other temples, and has such an amazing atmosphere.

The walk down the streets of Chiba which are lined with market stalls to the temple was v charming.

Only 10 minutes walk from Keisei Narita Station. The shopping street has many cute shops along the way. The famous rice and grilled eels are one the right with a long queue - taking averagely 30-45 minutes to get a queue. You can walk into the temple free of charge. The garden is very big. Recommended to come to this place during autumn.

Peaceful and healthy place to visit. I loved the structure of the main temple and also small stream down the path which was refreshing and the view was spectacular.
