It is a short walk from Narita Station where most hotels drop people off and is worth a walk down Omote Sando (which means main street towards the temple). The area is old style Japan and has many different specialty shops such as eel, peanuts and rice cakes.Most of the shops have character.

Omote Sando teems with shops and restaurants on the way to Shinshoji Temple from Narita Station. The shops showcase local products, souvenir items and kitschy things.

An amazing little town originally built to support the Naritasan Temple! I enjoyed walking up & down the streets and interacting with the people! Don't miss watching the experts prepare unagi for grilling, the soap shop, and also have a bag of rice crackers to nosh on! And, you can purchase many authentic items to take home as a souvenir!...

Take a leisurely stroll and you will enjoy everything that you see around you. Visit the food stores and souvenir shops and you will find something that you like. It is lined up with beautiful flowers and animals made of sculptured stones. A tourist information center is located near the temple where you can ask for directions and where to... More

Fun Street to shop and eat. Fresh eel cut and grilled along with other food shops. Stopped at a coffee shop with a nice selection. Tried the Brazilian coffee.

For only 500 Yen (around 5.00 dollars) I got to try on a real kimono. In the old part of Narita, on the way to the Temple (a must see), there is a little alley and they have a sign out pointing to kimono try on. I thought, what the heck, might be fun. There were 3 or 4 little... More

There are all sorts of shops from typical gift shops to clothes to chopsticks specialty stores. I recommend the amazake (sweet rice wine, no alcohol) at the end, or the rice cracker store next door. If you are in the mood for eel, there are plenty of places - I recommend Kawatoyo, but unless you get there right when they... More

Here you will find shops after shops of souvenir items, authentic Unagi (eel fish) restaurant, ramen place, among many others. It is a lovely place to get stroll and grab a bite or some souvenir items. Along the way,... More
