6. Visit a quaint town of Itako/Sawara
Duration: 5 hours
Price: 12,000 yen per person (two or more)
If you like to explore a bit more country side of Narita, the town of Itako is ideal. Although well known for iris fields in May/June, when hundreds of thousands of people flock to, it also offers history, culture, and tranquility for the rest of the season. Here are some of the features.
1. Choshoji Temple .
Not a tourist spot, but a typical rural buddhist temple in Japan gives you peace of mind in tranquil settings. Cherry blossoms in April and autumn colors in November are not to be missed.
Seasonal beauty is not to be missed.
2. Grill Senbei (traditional rice crackers) over charcoal; Do-it-yourself style.
Senbei is made of mochi rice, dried to last awhile. When grilled over charcoal, it gets fluffied and then becomes crunchy after cooled off. You make your own to enjoy the flavor freshly prepared.
