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!

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!

One of the have to go temples in Japan, close to the airport and the stores around make it amazing to enjoy Japan's culture. The details in the art, the events around it, this is Japan! At the back there's a garden that you don't have to miss!

We came here as part of a day trip to Naritasan, and it's quite a nice getaway from the city of Tokyo. Also easily accessible from Tokyo, which is a bonus. The temple is very big, with many smaller buildings all on a huge park with koi ponds and fountains. Make sure to get a few prayers in and get some lucky charms. The streets to the temple is lined with shops and restaurants, makes a perfect getaway from the city.

"Mesmerized by Nature's Symphony" would be best suited description for my visit to this Buddhist Temple in Japan.
Can easily reach this place from the railway station.
Do Walk down the street (filled with souvenir shops & local eateries) from railway station to temple, it will be nice experience too.
Spent more than 3 hours at this place. Beautifully sculptured temples is a great piece of art. Do take some pain to know the history of this place.
Spending time here and enjoying the nature's beauty will give you a piece of mind.
Take sufficient time and enjoy your visit.
