Another Naritasan, Naritasan Park

by Nobu - Japan Licensed Guide
(68) Reviews

You may have visited Naritasan Shinshoji Temple which is one of the most popular temples in Japan. Since it is in 30 minute distance from Narita Airport by train & walk, you can easily visit this temple if you stay in Narita area.

What I would like to introduce you in this time is not the temple itself but "Naritasan Park" in its grounds. This is a large park where visitors can enjoy flowers of all seasons, such as plum blossoms, cherry blossoms, chrysanthemums, etc. It is located on the right hand side of the Great Main Hall of the temple. There are waterfalls, big ponds and tree-shaded walkways. You can enjoy walking in the green forest.

If you are interested in Japanese haiku poems, you will find stone tablets inscribed with haiku poems by renowned poets, such as Matsuo Basho and Takahama Kyoshi.

I would like you to visit this park if you have free time in Narita.

If you would like to visit the temple and its related buildings, I would recommend you to go with a guide. There are several historic buildings, but it may be difficult to understand each deeply only by the information board or a guide map.

Since I am offering 3-hour tour to Naritasan Temple, please take a look at the below website if you are interested in it.

It was an exciting and interesting visit to Mount Fuji. With a family of 5, we were lucky to see clear blue sky with Mount Fuji clearly visible. We started our day from Shin Okubu at 8.30am and arrived Lake Kawamuchigo at 9.45am. As we were early, there’s no queue and we managed to go for lake cruise without much waiting time. Thanks to Nobu San in planning such an agenda for us. He is definitely ...

“ Day trip to Mt. Fuji ”

Excellent
5 months ago Traveler: Tony -   Tour Guide: Nobu

Hi. My family and I recently spent a week in Tokyo. One of the places we wanted to visit was Mt. Fuji. I considered booking a daytrip before arriving in Tokyo but I understood that the weather was a big factor in being able to see Mt. Fuji and I was not convinced of the accuracy of the weather forecasts 2-3 weeks before the trip. Also, almost all of the day trips to Mt. Fuji required us to mee...

“ What a great guide!! ”

Excellent

I had requested a driver with a car, but apparently there was some confusion about that and Nobu arrived at my hotel on time, but on foot. I'm so glad he did after all! Not only did he take me to where I wanted to go, but he was incredibly knowledgable about everything Tokyo. Getting around on the Metro with him was soooo much easier and fun. We even went to the Micro Pig cafe together. As well, I...

Excellent

Nobu is an amazing guide who knows how to navigate the ways. We went around Tokyo City for a day and another one was spent at Sendai. He knew of the places and history, so we were made aware of the stories behind a particular building/area etc. We had a 4 year old active child and must compliment that Nobu was very patient with her. Thank you for all your help, Nobu!
