Narita International Airport Terminal 1, Narita

4.3
Take a good look at the airplanes flying in and out from Narita International Airport Terminal 1, a spacious fenced platform with benches and telescopes. You can see the entire length of a runway, extending for some 4,000 m (13,123 ft) with small openings in the wire fence allowing you to get your camera through for a good shot. Watch the bustle as passengers enter shuttle buses, and baggage handlers and air traffic staff do their thing, as you kill time before your departure.

Where to stay in Narita

The accommodations of Narita come in two main areas: by the airport and in the town proper. As such, they cater to those just passing through, and those here to see the sights. By the airport, you'll find business hotels, with simple rooms, gyms, and pools. In the town center, a collection of simple hotels and hostels sit next to the main train station, while a number of traditional "ryokan" (guesthouses) provide atmospheric stays on the streets just off the main thoroughfare leading to the temple.
