About
Rowboats, shrines, festivals and sake breweries! Sawara, a 30 minute train ride away from Narita Airport, is a city in which you can enjoy beautiful historical townscapes of the Edo Period (1603-1868). There is an Important Traditional Building Group Conservation Area in the center of town, and you can row down the river to get a great view of it. In Sawara there is also the house of the man who made the first map of Japan, a traditional festival recognised by UNESCO and the head shrine of several hundred Katori Shrines in Japan. As there is a lot to cover on this tour, you will use bicycles as a means of transportation. If you are flying into or out from Narita Airport, we recommend this tour!
