Sitting on the eastern cusp of Tokyo in Chiba Prefecture, Narita is mostly known—to travelers at least—for one thing: the airport. But if you stray a little farther than the departure platform to the Narita Express, you’ll discover an absolute gem of a tourist destination that’s been hiding in plain sight all this time.
If you have an extended layover in Narita, an early flight or you want to take a weekend trip out of Tokyo, this corner of Japan has plenty to offer! The area has world-class museums, quaint retro towns, historic sites, family-friendly activities, and excellent food. If you want to learn more or book an English tour guide, the Narita Airport Transit and Stay initiative is a great resource too.
