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

This is a must place to stop at if you are in Narita or the vicinity. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous, and the temples are magnificent. I only had a couple of hours to spend but will definitely visit again. It is one of the most peaceful and beautiful places I have ever been to.
Only 20 minutes away from the airport, if you have a few hours to spare definitely make it a point to visit. In one word - SPECTACULAR!

Breathtaking religious and historical site, easy access by 10-minutes walk through a busy pedestrian street from Narita Station. Take 1-2 hours at least to discover the entire area and its numerous beautiful buildings and garden paths. If you have difficulty walking uphill, elevators also connect the various levels of the site. Highly recommended also if you just spend a few hours around Narita airport!

We visited this temple for the new year's day. It was very crowded but very well managed too. The temple is spacious with a beautiful park. You can also enjoy shopping and eat Unagi on your way to the temple. It takes about 2 hours to explore this place - on the new year's day, it took us almost 4 hours to get around. The entrance to this place was for free. Beautiful place!

Better than all the temples in Tokyo I've visited. It's at once beautiful and peaceful. Be sure to stroll through the dense forest with a zen flavor as well as catch the fire ritual at the main temple!
