6 Hotel Buffets in Narita. Including Options for Hot Springs and Day Trips

 

If you're visiting Narita, why not treat yourself to a day trip to a high class hotel?

This is a guide to our recommended hotels near Narita International Airport where you can enjoy seasonal and local buffets, as well as some of the local hot springs.

 

Hotels in Narita Ideal for Day Trips

There are many hotels in the vicinity of Narita International Airport where people using the airport can spend the night.

There are business and luxury hotels, of course, but also capsule hotels, guest houses, and all manner of other types of accommodation to suit all budgets and requirements.

 

But hotels are not just for overnight accommodation.

They can also house hot springs, gyms, gourmet restaurants and more. So much, in fact, that it can almost feel like a waste simply to sleep at them.

 

This time we'd like to introduce our favorite hotels in and around Narita that we think are ideal for day trips.

ANA Crowne Plaza Hotel Narita

The ANA Crowne Plaza Narita is close to the airport. In fact, some of the rooms even overlook the runway.

 

The hotel's restaurant/cafe "Ceres" features a buffet with a seasonal menu.

Their menu for October 2021 is "Autumn Harvest Festival: Autumn Buffet."

This is a weekend-only lunchtime buffet that allows the guests to experience a real taste of autumn.

 

They also pride themselves on providing unparalleled service to their guests, for example by offering discounts for arriving in costumes and providing candy for their younger guests.

The Radisson Narita is home to the famous "Yurake Castle" with its extravagant decorations, including the extraordinary projection mapping.

The menu theme for October 2021 is "Autumn Harvest Festival Buffet."

The dinner buffet features a number of dishes that evoke the season of autumn.

 

I have actually tried this buffet for myself, and will be reporting on it later.

The Hotel Nikko Narita is right next to the airport.

It houses a number of restaurants, but the ones we'd like to focus on this time are the "Serena" and "Toh-Lee" restaurants on the first floor that both offer a buffet menu.

 

For example, for October 2021 Serena is offering a "Japanese Gourmet Part 2: Lunch Buffet" menu.

Enjoy a variety of the chef's specialties, all using seasonal ingredients.

 

Outside of the buffets, the hotel also regularly hold special events in its events space, so do check out what's on before you go!

The Buffet at the Radisson Narita is Family Friendly

After suppressing my desire to try out all the buffets introduced so far in one sitting, I chose to first go to the dinner buffet at the Radisson Narita, where I was able to get a reservation without a problem.

The buffet they were offering at the time was the "Autumn Harvest Festival Buffet," which will be available during October and November 2021.

The restaurant adjoins the lobby, so is very easy to find.

Upon entering the restaurant you are shown to your seat, after which you are free to get up and visit the buffet and take whatever dishes you like.

Many of the dishes use seasonal ingredients grown locally, and the colors all reminded me strongly of Fall.

Even the desserts are autumnal. The rich flavor of the chestnut pudding in particular is one that I couldn't get enough of.

 

There were also curries and ice creams, and a whole host of items that children would enjoy, so I got the impression that many of the customers were actually families.

It is a large space, so it's very easy to enjoy your meal at your own leisure.

They explain as you enter the restaurant that to prevent the spread of infections it is recommended that you wear vinyl gloves when taking your food.

 

Enjoying the Indoors in Narita

There are many wonderful places to visit in and around Narita, including the airport and the world-famous Narita-san Shinsho-ji temple.

If you are staying in Narita these places are well worth a visit, but you may also want to spend a day relaxing in one of the nearby hotels instead.

 

All of the buffets described here are seasonal, so do be sure to check out the hotels' websites before visiting.
