#1 of 9 in Parks in Narita
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.

  • I spent an hour or so wandering around this large, beautiful park. There are a couple of lakes, one has a gazebo over the water which makes for pretty photos framed by cherry blossoms. There’s also a ...  more »
  • Beyond Shinshoji Temple is a traditional Japanese lake park that is so pristine only a few wander beyond the Shinto shrines... This is a nirvana for garden lovers.  more »
  • This is maybe the place when you think about Japanese Gardens. Nice pond, with benches and many fish and turtles.  more »

  • We went here on our last day in Japan. It was the best decision! It had everything that you needed to see. Beautiful temples and castles. The grounds were gorgeous and there are cherry blossoms every where. There are lots of food options around it, and a little market if you want to buy souvenirs. There were lots of turtles as you walk in as well.
  • Amazing grounds and structures. This visit included a dusting of snow to modify the beautiful scenery. There is a ceremony every day at 9:00 AM. Take off your shoes when entering the temple and have a seat either on the floor or on the long bench at the back. One can enjoy and appreciate the ritual no matter what language one speaks. Stroll the extensive grounds that include a lake and hidden waterfalls. Explore the old temple structures. This is an amazing site though if there is snow (very rare) use caution as stairs and pathways are slippery.
  • Absolutely beautiful park, especially during autumn with all the trees changing colours! We used to go here every autumn when we lived in Japan, and will keep going here for a visit every time were back in Japan. The town itself is amazingly beautiful!
  • Best park/shrine we went to in Japan. Incredibly beautiful and huge. We spent almost 3 hours walking and admiring all of its beauty. Really worth spending 1 day in Narita to visit this place.
  • Very large Temple and park area. All seems very new somehow. The park is nice to have a light walk through. But it is steep sometimes.
