Can get very very busy, we visited February...and it was busy then. So watch out for crowds in summer. Visit information centre in shopping area, very very helpful. Area not far from the temple and shrine.

A great walk down to Naritasan with typical restaurants, some typical Japanese restaurant and a few tourist shops as well. There is a mix of very old beautiful buidings and some new ones. I would recommend this walk. Not just for tourists...

A lovely street to stroll to the temple and gardens. Full of interesting shops where you can buy quality Japanese items to take home as souvenirs. Lots of choices for eating here, you can be adventurous too with eel if you want. There is a McDonalds in the railway station square at the start of the street if you want a coffee stop before you start your browsing the street. It is a sloping street downwards walk so allow sufficient time to walk back up the street if you have a particular bus time to meet. A lot of the local larger hotels in the area have complimentary shuttle services that pick up and drop off in the railway station square area which makes it handy to organise a visit to the temple, the gardens and this interesting street for a visit prior to your later flight out of Japan or your arrival in Japan.…

We visited this traditional village and we amazed at the culture. We met Japanese friends here and there took us to a authentic restaurant which was amazing experience in the building having Japanese food and drinks.Very highly recommend this attraction

I liked it here. Lots of traditional architecture with wooden shutters, pot plants outside and the scent of grilled eel. There are lots of restaurants, boutiques and craft places to have a look around. I would add though that a lot of it was closed on the Sunday we were there.
