My favourite road in Narita.
Food is expensive here comparing to the other areas of Narita.
You will find the tourist information centre.
This road leads to Naritasan temple.
You will see dead snakes in bottles in one of the restaurants.
You can pick any snake you like for a lunch there.
There are so many restaurants. The super market has food and drinks much more cheaper than the restaurants.
Don't forget your camera and flat shoes.
There are public toilets as well and they are very clean.

Strolling along Omote Sando you see many shops traditional foods, clothes, supplies, and even tourist souvenirs. Also many restaurants and places to get a cold drink. Nice Narita Tourism Office, too.

From the train station, we had some coffee at McDonalds and proceed to stroll onto the street towards Shinshoji temple. The road is curvy and small so be careful of traffic but having said that, we found that most of the drivers in here to be very courteous and polite giving way to pedestrians. There are shops and shops along both side of the street selling many varieties of items, especially unagi, done 'live' on the spot.

After the stroll and back from visiting the temple, we took a bus shuttle near the train station at Yen200/pax to nearby AEON shopping complex. The trip was scenic and we had our lunch of tempura there while making some small purchase at AEON. Overall, it was a great trip here for us.

We ventured to Narita from the airport by train on our 8 hour stop over in Japan. It was a fantastic way to kill some time. On this one little street alone leading away from Narita train station, you definitely felt like you're experiencing a little piece of traditional Japan.

This cute windy street, only wide enough to fit one lane of traffic has an array of eatery, gift shops, and pop up stalls with snacks lined all along it.

Once you reach the bottom of this street, you reach Naritasan temple, which is a gorgeous backdrop for taking some pictures.

We will definitely be taking a trip back to Japan in the near future, but for a stop over, if this is all you have time for, it is definitely worth making the trip from the airport and storing your baggage in the airport lockers.

The quaint street starts from the Narita JR train station to the Naritasan (famous temple). If you are interested in visiting traditional Japnanese shops, be prepared to spend a good one hour here. There are many shops selling Japanese gift for tourists, but the prices aren't cheap.

For dinning, Narita is famous for its eel, so do try the unagi-don. It's really tasty but can be expensive. I paid around 2500yen for one restaurant right next to the Naritasan, I think it's a bit over-priced.
