So i had planned to visit this place before coming to Japan. Yesterday i finally went and i was not disappointed. Its free admission and the place is huge! There is a park connected to the shrine and this was very worthwhile. The park has a waterfall and 3 ponds. The size of the structures are incredible and you can get hand drawn stamps in the temple. Enjoy.

Visited during a long layover in Japan. Definitely worth the trouble of leaving the airport! The temple is beautiful and the grounds and trails are such a treat to walk. Wasn't too overcrowded when I was there mid-week, and there was a neat ceremony going on mid-day. Highly recommend!

This is a beautiful place to visit and they like foreigners to participate in the ceremony chats they have. They have English pamphlets to help you understand more. As the guide who told me that a famous Kabuki theater family is a big contributor to this Temple. Totally worth a visit.

If you're anywhere near here, go to this temple. It's one of the largest in Japan. Don't miss the large traditional garden. The street between the station and the temple maintains a traditional look with many interesting restaurants and stores.

If your staying near Narita Airport, your hotel might have a shuttle to town square. Just down the hill is this beautiful garden and religious shrine (watch for locals praying and be respectful of their faith). Great pictures to take and lots of areas so you can find your own little paradise
