Head up to Naritasan Park, a green area with plentiful features, located at the back of a hilltop temple. Opened in 1928, the well-maintained park covers an area of 165,000 sq m (1,776,045 sq ft), and its expanse combines both Western and traditionally Japanese features. Dense wooded areas provide ample shade under the multicolored canopy of the leafy trees, while three lakes act as focal points for gentle strolls through the grounds. Stop in the onsite museum of calligraphy for a welcome taste of culture in this scenic oasis. For Naritasan Park and beyond, use our Narita trip planner to get the most from your Narita vacation.

It is characterized by areas of woodland with a creek and ponds. It is crossed by trails and there reigns a pleasant atmosphere, also because visitors move in this natural environment with very respectful behaviors.
参拝の後に散歩で回りました。中はかなり広いのと信仰の人気のスポットだと言う事が良くわかります。庭自体は落ち着いてそれほど人も居なかったのでゆっくり散策できました。しかし、広いのでかなり時間に余裕がないと書道美術館などを見学する時間がありませんでした。８月の末に行きましたが暑い昼間でも木々の中は涼しくて良いのですが逆に水がある為蚊が多くかなり刺されました。 more »After the visit, I went around for a walk. It is quite wide inside and it is a popular spot of the faith well. The garden itself was calm and there were not so many people, so we were able to take a leisurely walk. However, because it was large, I didn't have much time to visit the Calligraphy Museum. I went there at the end of August, but even in the hot daytime, it was good to be cool in the trees, but there was water on the contrary, so there were a lot of mosquitoes and i was bitten quite a bit.
A very very beautiful place. Take the time to walk around, if possible bring your food and enjoy it on a bench or a picnic. There are temples, lakes, flowers, and trails. Definitely worth stopping here, especially since lots of the flights come or go through Narita anyway. Also recommended to walk the streets around it with all their shops and restaurants.
Beautiful place. So pristine and calm. Very well maintained. The scenery is quite breathtaking. Was quite crowded even though we visited in winter but not so crowded as to be annoying. Park is adjoining the Naritasan Temple which is definitely a must visit too.
