First, the town of Narita is very nice. We had been to Tokyo and Osaka, this was a charming small town with little shops, friendly people and (an issue) cash machines that didn't work.
We got to the temple in the morning with a tight time frame for a flight and shuttle. It was amazing. The temples are beautiful and the grounds extensive. We walked and walked along sunny or shady groves of trees, koy ponds, plantings. We had spent 2 weeks in Japan, including imperial palaces and hundreds of temples, but we enjoyed this so much. Cherry trees were just starting to bloom but here the focus was broader.
I suspect most visitors to Japan will miss this by the airport town and this temple - but I hope if you are going you don't. It was amazing.
