It fantastic place to met some history of Japan and it is for free which is a great bonus! Some structures are form X century so it is really very impressive. If you happen to be around it is simple must see! Great experience .
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 by far our favorite temple grounds. We went to quite a few during our visit, including Kyoto. The ground are massive, the ponds are beautiful and full of koi fish, and the temples are amazing. Best of all, there's no entry charge!
10 minutes from Narita airport and worth the short train trip. Nice shops and restaurants along the 10 minute walk as well. This national Park is a great way of actually enjoying a short layover. Don't miss it.
